Urban consciousness as a concept related to understanding and adapting to the conditions and norms of living in a city has become an important aspect of life quality studies. In the content of this study, a statistical survey has been applied to 2000 inhabitants in Bursa, a city of Turkey with its historical, industrial, natural and social qualities. The survey is based on four criteria: awareness, belonging to, responsibility and transformation to analyze the "urban consciousness" of the inhabitants. This study with theoretical frame and survey results is hoped to be an applicable and developable model for various urban researches. (C) 2015 The Authors. Published by Elsevier Ltd.
