In a study of the San Antonio, Texas, SMSA, this report indicates that, while respondents believe the environment is deteriorating, they do not believe environmental problems are among the most important faced by the Nation. Analysis of the data shows that: (1) there is a significant relationship between environmental attitude and area, ethnicity, and a person's economic and educational status (SES); (2) concern with environmental quality and problems is greater among inner-city respondents than suburban respondents; (3) Mexican-Americans rank environmental concerns higher than Anglos no matter where they live although Anglos are more aware of and active in organizations that focus on the environment; and (4) high SES respondents were more aware of environmental problems and more actively involved in environmental organizations than middle or low SES respondents.
