  • Regional Trends, No. 43 - Rural and urban areas: comparing lives using rural/urban classifications (Pdf 2812Kb) 08-Jun-2011
    Most people have a clear impression of what the cities, towns and countryside look like in the UK, both physically and in terms of the lives of the people who live there. This article compares rural and urban areas statistically for themes such as working, income and earnings, services and population, using geographical classifications. There is quantitative evidence that rural areas are better off than urban areas on a number of different measures, such as unemployment and crime. In a few respects rural areas are worse off. Using classifications that show sparse areas of England and Wales, some topics show ‘two countrysides’ – a better off, less sparse and more accessible one, and a less populous and isolated sparse countryside. Patterns within urban areas often differ, with the most urban areas of England frequently showing particular trends and the widest variations.
