The purpose of this paper is to examine the relationship between housing satisfaction and intention to move among apartment owners. The sample was 809 women, individually interviewed. The findings indicate that the two indicators are not necessarily different expressions of the same attitude. People may be satisfied with their housing and still intend to move, and others may be dissatisfied and not intend to move. Moreover, the variables explaining the variance of each indicator are different. The percentage of the explained variance was higher for intention to move than for housing satisfaction.
