Abstract

The main purpose of this study is to determine the Money Attitude Scale (MAS) among Universiti Malaysia Sabah students. A second purpose of the present study is to determine the relationships between several demographic measures and money attitudes. This study was carried out using questionnaires which contained demographic information and five factors of Money Attitude Scale (MAS) by Yamauchi and Templer (1982). Questionnaires were dispensed to 360 students in School of Science and Technology, Universiti Malaysia Sabah. Cronbach's alpha of these five factors ranging from 0.727 to 0.875. Factor analysis of MAS scale was then carried out using principle components and varimax rotation. Five factors explained for 50.259% to 69.489% of the total variances respectively. Only one item of the original Anxiety factor was removed from the scale. Independent-samples t-test showed that males were like to view money as a source of power compared to females. Also, males were like to pay more to get the quality desired. On the other hand, one-way analysis of variance also showed some significantly differences between demographic variables (age, race, religion) on factors of the Money Attitude Scale. However, present study found no significant differences between programs of studying, parents' income and education levels on any factors of the Money Attitude Scale.
