AbstractTourism has been experiencing a rapid increase in the developed world especially in China and resident perceptions toward tourism development have been receiving increasing attention. However resident perceptions on a large scale and the associated affecting factors remain unknown. In this study 63 independent samples across China were analyzed using structural equation modeling and the effects of three factors of per capita gross domestic product (GDP) tourist receipts and length of tourism development from the perceptive of economy society and culture and environment were investigated. Residents demonstrated a positive attitude toward tourism development on a large scale across China. However the resident perceptions were GDP-dependent which indicated a lower awareness of infrastructure improvement with the increase in GDP. Meanwhile residents became more aware of environmental deterioration and social-order disturbance with the increase in the length of tourism development and tourist receipts. In addition tourist receipts and length of tourism development exerted indirect effects on other perceptions by affecting the perception of environmental deterioration and economic improvement. Our results implied that to minimize the effect of negative perception attention should be paid to the optimization of the perceptions of economic improvement and environmental deterioration and the protection of the residential environment should be viewed as a high-priority task in improving resident perceptions.
