The impact of urban sprawl on the community in Johor Bahru City is still unclear. This study involves four objectives of study, namely to analyze the psychometric level of the local lifestyle before the urban sprawl, to identify the level of urban sprawl related to the psychometric scenario of the local lifestyle of the present day, to determine the psychometric differences in the lifestyle of the community in Johor Bahru City as a result of urban sprawl, and to determine the current lifestyle psychometric differences based on the background of the community of Johor Bahru City. A survey was
conducted on the head of household amongst these original inhabitants aged 45 years and over with a total of 500 respondents. This study uses descriptive analysis, T test and one way ANOVA. The findings as a whole illustrate that respondents' lifestyles are still good today that involve the constructs of value, interests, desires, beliefs, activities and overall lifestyle psychographic. However, the slight deterioration of lifestyle is the self-attitude and self-view of the people in Johor Bahru City. However, lifestyle as a whole as well as based on every lifestyle construct nowadays remains at a good level, but it has slowed down to a satisfactory level by mean value compared to before the urban sprawl. This is evidenced by the inferential statistical analysis of T test also found that the overall lifestyle aspect of the community in Johor Bahru City shows a difference between the present and the before as a result of the urban sprawl for all lifestyle constructs and overall aspects of the lifestyle itself. In the context of the respondent's background, the study found that the different factors of race, income, occupation, religion and the level of education have led to a difference in lifestyle and not to someone’s age. This study suggests that people who have lived long in the city need to jointly improve the value of lifestyle that involves self-value, self-attitudes, self-views, self-interest, self-determination, self-esteem, self-activities or daily routine and overall lifestyle psychographic.
