This is research supporting data. Abstract Environment-behavior studies are among the important theoretical fields in environmental design sciences. The concepts of territory, behavioral setting, and environmental affordance are essential and reliable in examining the relationship between humans and the environment, especially in the space of a residential neighborhood. The primary purpose of this study is to search for common physical attributes in three types of residential contexts that affect the daily behavior of residents. In this respect, a space syntax approach allows the parallel study of concepts in this field through systematic software studies. Also, a system of attributes with a significant correlation between the results of studies in these two areas can lead to constructing a design assistance software. This paper applies a survey method and space syntax analysis to study three types of contexts: organic (historical), orthogonal (modern) with a combination of urban squares, and orthogonal combined with hierarchical passages. The survey study includes field observation and questionnaire techniques. Besides, software analysis is carried out using Depthmap10. The scale of the study area in each context is home-based space. The results are represented as values from each method and correlation tables. There is also a system of attributes with correlations between the results of the questionnaire and the analysis for each of three contexts and a system for common correlations in all three contexts. The system is set up as a matrix of spatial and behavioral scales, on the one hand, and social relations, behavioral settings, and environmental affordance, on the other. Each matrix represents the most important and influential attributes and spatial properties that are predictable through software analysis.
