This research measured attribution variables into dimensions of fatalistic, structuralistic and individualistic. The results of the research suggests that there are differences in three dimensions.

There is a very signficant difference between individualistic attribution of urban and rural society (F=9.54, p=0.002). The rural sosiety has higher individualistic attribution than that of the urban society (mean comparison = 2.77 < 3.17).
