In research on environmental attitude and environmental behavior the important variables are often measured with item batteries based on self reported information. It is questionable whether the items for the measurement of proecological activity cover more than just \"symbolic behavior\". Bodenstein, Spiller and Elbers (1997) proposed an index focusing on the actual energy and material consumption of a household. We compare this concept with other scales and empirically analyze with data from the survey \"Environmental Attitudes in Germany 1998\" to what extent the results of regression models of environmental behavior depend on the underlying scales. It is shown that there are remarkable differences with respect to the crucial determinants \"environmental attitude\" and \"personal income\".
