Abstract

The selection of an ideal living environment is a complex process that involves multiple attributes, which makes the decision of an appropriate living environment difficult. Hence, a suitable assessment model is needed to solve the complexity. The multiple attribute decision-making methods-Fuzzy Delphi Method (FDM) and Analytical Hierarchy Process (AHP)-were the multiple attribute decision-making methods applied to determine the assessment criteria for the selection of living environment. By using FDM, the criteria for living the selection were determined. Subsequently, AHP was applied to ensure the consistency of each factor, that way an objective and accurate assessment tool for living area selection can be developed. The results show that the most significant factors are environments, followed by designs. Building constructions are less significant. Moreover, it was found in the study that community welfare is neglected. Therefore, it is suggested that (1) related authorities should strengthen community welfare and neighborhood development and that (2) social resources should be integrated in order to deliver social welfare and services to the community, allowing the people in the community to acquire the necessary resources and assistance.
