    AbstractTriangulation has become an important research design in social sciences. By combining various data sources to examine the same social phenomenon, triangulation provides an opportu nity to increase research reliability as well as to offer a fuller configuration of the research issue. In recent years, triangulation has been mainly confined to the data analysis using qualitative method. To apply triangulation in large quantitative data is still seriously lacking. This study applies triangulation to a survey data comprised of multiple samples - including local residents, college teachers, and students - that examines the subjective quality of life in a college community. The data were drawn from a research project entitled “The Interaction between Private Universities and the Society'\One specific university in central Taiwan was selected for this study The results indicate that the evaluation on subjective quality of life is indeed different among three groups of respondents Among local residents, college teachers, and students, inconsistent responses in subjective evaluation of life quality are demonstrated. The application of data triangulation has been confirmed by the preliminary findings.
