A study was conducted to investigate correlations between voluntary simplicity lifestyles (VSLs.) and perceptual or behavioral characteristics regarding VSLs.. 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 four variables. Product-moment correlation coefficients were calculated 1) between these four variables and variables of the
frequency of proenvironmental behaviors and 2) between the four variables and perceptual or behavioral characteristics associated with VSLs. Many correlations were significant, and were in assumed directions.
