Statistical focus on rural Wales

  • Release date: 15 May 2008
This is a general report that considers how we define “Rural Wales”. There is a range of feasible options that, in particular circumstances, will be more or less relevant.

This report considers what the options are and how we can select between them to arrive at an appropriate definition. In particular we suggest two classifications that can be used as default starting points for general analyses.

To show these classifications in use this report also considers some general analyses of existing data sources to try and paint a picture of the differences – and similarities – between Rural Wales and the rest of Wales.
