ABSTRACT

This correlational study aims to empirically observe the relationship between religiosity and the consumptive lifestyle among Hijabers Community in Bandung. This study uses Tilliouine and Belgoumidi’s theory of religiosity (2009) and Sumartono’s theory of consumptive lifestyle (2002). The data collection process was conducted by employing both the Islamic Religiosity Scale and the Consumptive Lifestyle Scale, using summated rating model by likert. The total numbers of subjects involved in the study are 92 females, consisted of members and active committee of Hijabers Community Bandung. Sampling was taken by purposive sampling technique. The results of Spearman’s rank data analysis show that there is a positive relation between religiosity and the consumptive lifestyle on the 92 members of Hijabers Community Bandung (r=0,079), and that religiosity contributes only by 0,62% (R2 = 0,62) to the consumptive lifestyle. The correlation’s level of religiosity and consumptive lifestyle of Hijabers Community Bandung is at a very low category. For further research, it is advisable to increase the study sample because of the countless number of Muslim and the ever-increasing number of Hijabers Community in Bandung members, as this may lead to obtaining better research findings and generalization.
