This paper uses the interactional community approach to examine the effects of community attachment and quality of life on migration intention in rural Pennsylvania and Taiwanese communities. Both quality of life and community attachment were found to have positive effects on reducing migration intention. Similar patterns were found in both data sets, although the hypothesis that quality of life mediates the effect of community attachment on migration intention was not supported in the Taiwanese data. Separate models that include additional measures of community attachment and quality of life are needed to further elaborate the mediating effect of quality of life on the relationship between community attachment and migration intention.
