study is aimed at testing discriminative validity of an scale of sense of community already
used for comparing two urban communities chosen because of their marked social and
community differences, through two representative samples of 481 and 260 participants.
Differences found in the level of sense of community and participation and constancy of
factor structure (shown by similarity of main and other factors in spite of differences on
minor factors) confirm discriminative validity of the scale. Sense of community is high
and participation very low in both communities.

Key words:

sense of community, participation
