Measuring Intra-Country Level of Comfort Among Subcultures in Italy

In order to compare the level of comfort among different sub cultural groups at multicultural work places in the national context, several observed and unobserved variables (comfort scales) are described. The inter city differences in Italian cities in terms of the level of comfort among various sub cultural groups are studied. The results obtained from the comparison of multi cultural workplaces from different large Italian cities are presented and analysed. The paper finds there is no significant ‘city’ effect on most of the comfort scales when analysed from the responses from several large Italian cities. Impact of other control variables like ‘gender’, ‘age groups’, ‘income – groups’ on the derived comfort scales is analysed and documented.
