The Relationship between Trust in Government and Attitude toward Mining: Moderated by Values
Abstract: The present study aimed to examine the relationship between trust in government and people’s attitude toward mining, and explore the moderating role of value. 595 participants including 292 male and 303 female completed the questionnaire. Their mean age is 35, and the standard devia-tion is 9.87. It has worked out that people’s trust in government stays at a medium state and is re-lated to age, while their attitude toward mining is also neutral. Trust in government can lead to acceptance of mining, while age, gender and value are controlled. Furthermore, egoistic values and altruistic values can enhance the relationship between trust in government and attitude toward mining, but biospheric values will weaken it.
