This study compared children's assessments of their neighbourhood environments in Sydney and Beijing.Students from nine high schools in Sydney ( N = 166) and two high schools in Beijing ( N = 234) participated in a survey study. Exploratory factor analysis, AN OVA, and structural equation modeling were used to analyse data. Items in the CNE Scale were clustered into four factors: Route to School, Vegetation & Facilities, Neighbours and Convenience. Significant national difference was found on one factor of neighbourhood environment: Rout to School. Structural equation modeling revealed a significant correlation between the constructs" country" and "neighbourhood socio-physical environment" , implying a relationship between the two. In sum, the findings suggested that children in Sydney were more satisfied with their overall neighbourhood socio-physical environment, especially regarding their routes to school.
