Living in apartments has turned into an inevitable way of life in the current century. The inhabitants of these small dwelling places feel the need to have access to open spaces. In such spaces care must be given to social factors since they are places where people visit each other. Taking factors that affect social responsibility while planning those spaces, would lead to the presence of more people in those areas. Security is a factor that influences people's presence and stay in a place. Since in the city of Ilam public open space per capita is little and increasing this space inside the city is not possible due to negligence about public open space in this city's detailed plan, increasing semi-public and private open space per capita is highly important. The authors of this article tried to find out what factors affected social responsibility in open spaces in residential complexes through the study of library documents and application of a descriptive survey by preparing an 18 item questionnaire and distributing it among the inhabitants of a "The Self-employed" residential complex in Janbazan neighborhood which consists of 900 apartments. The data obtained through the questionnaire were analyzed using SPSS and AMOS software. The analysis showed that increasing thermal comfort of open spaces in residential complexes, will lead to the presence of more inhabitants in those spaces and thus social responsibility would increase. Physical factors that cause increase in Security are provision of appropriate Closeness, absence of non-resident individuals, flooring and furniture suitable, adequate lighting at night.
