  1. Note: the two first principal component loadings from the total number of 10 are in the table above. Bold loadings - The variables describing the outdoor environment have the highest loadings for Component 1, the variables describing the indoor environment have the highest loadings for Component 2. The first component is most highly correlated with the variables Drugs, alcohol used in vicinity and Violence, vandalism in the neighborhood. The second component is most highly correlated with the variable Temperature comfort. Missing values are lower than the absolute value of 0.100.
