Environmental problems are one of the most serious problems facing coal mining in China. Concerns of environmental satisfaction are fundamental arguments for the adoption of environmental legislation in coal mine areas. In this study we examine how local residents in the coal mine area perceive environmental satisfaction and the relationship between this perception and the environmental pollution perception and the social-demographic factors. 1936 specific questionnaires of residents in the coal mine area from August 2008 to December 2010 were analysed by ordered logistic regression and ordinary least squares model using SPSS. The residents in the coal mining area are not satisfied with the environment. Government and coal mine enterprises’ attitude to environmental protection, evaluation of resident’s health and household income have a positive impact on environmental satisfaction. Air pollution has a negative impact on environmental satisfaction.
