In this study the correlations between voluntary simplicity lifestyles (VSLs) and perceptual or behavioral characteristics regarding VSLs were investigated. Questionnaires – each of which contained a 20-item 5-point scale of VSLs, a 13-item 4-point scale of the frequency of proenvironmental behaviors, and 23 5-point scales of various perceptual or behavioral characteristics regarding VSLs – were administered to 250 female adults. The scale of VSLs yielded 4 variables. Product-moment correlation coefficients were calculated 1) between these 4 variables and variables of the frequency of proenvironmental behaviors and 2) between the 4 variables and perceptual or behavioral characteristics associated with VSLs. Many correlations were significant, and were in assumed directions.
