Description

The dataset provides insightful information based on survey data on how Malaysian stakeholders in Klang Valley perceived the benefits and risks to represent their acceptance towards the WiAM technique. Self-administration questionnaires were done based on a validated study. All items were measured using a 7-point Likert scale, ranging from 1 (strongly disagree) to 7 (strongly agree). The data was collected voluntarily from stakeholders in September 2016 to September 2017. The Statistical Package for Social Sciences (SPSS ®) software was used to analyze descriptive and inferential statistics with analysis of Pearson Correlation and Multiple Regression. From a sample of 399 stakeholders aged above 18 years old, the present study found that they have shown a positive attitude towards the WiAM technique. The highest predictor of the attitude towards the WIAM technique among stakeholders was perceived benefits, followed by the attitude towards technology and trust in key players. There are the research hypotheses for this study: H1: The more benefits associated with the WiAM technique, the more positive attitude towards this technique. H2: The more risks associated with the WiAM technique, the more negative attitude towards this technique. H3: The more trust in the key players involved in using or applying the WiAM technique, the more relatively positive attitude towards this technique. H4: The more inclination towards nature than material, the fewer positive attitude towards the WiAM technique. H5: The more inclination towards technology, the positive attitude towards the WiAM technique. H6: The more attachment on religiosity, the positive attitude towards the WiAM technique.
