Scotland's People: Results from the Scottish Household Survey Annual Report - provides results for   The classification distinguishes between urban, rural and remote areas within Scotland.

The Scottish Government will use the classification to improve the rural evidence base. Issues such as transport, education and health can have a particular impact on rural communities and the Scottish Government seeks to reflect this in mainstream policy. More people are in part time employment in Remote Rural Scotland (31%) than urban Scotland (27%); and self- employment is more common in Remote Rural Scotland (22%) than urban Scotland (10%).

Households in rural areas show differences between Accessible Rural and Remote Rural Scotland. Accessible Rural areas are characterised by higher incomes. This classification aids in developing our understanding of the issues facing urban, rural and remote Scotland.

The Scottish Government Urban/Rural Classification (version –, which updates the – version) was first released in and is consistent with the Government’s core.

Development Trusts (DTs) are social enterprises that focus on community regeneration. Our research explored DT stakeholder views regarding the role of DTs in regenerating rural Scotland.

Using Q methodology [Barry, J., Proops, J., Seeking sustainability discourses with Q methodology. INSIGHT 47 RuRal SocIal woRk IN ScoTlaNd 5 Rural Scotland Today’s transport systems have largely eradicated remoteness in the sense it meant a century ago – there are now few places that are more than a day’s travel from Edinburgh and Glasgow.

However, differences between rural and urban living are still pronounced. Although The Land Reform (Scotland) Act has been successfully used across rural and urban Scotland, this was the first time permission had been granted to register interest in buying a Scottish Island under this legislation.

However, there is still more work to be done. 2. Overview. The Scottish Government Urban Rural Classification provides a consistent way of defining urban and rural areas across Scotland. The classification is based upon two main criteria: (i) population, as defined by the National Records of Scotland (NRS), and (ii) accessibility, based on drive time analysis to differentiate between accessible and remote areas in Scotland.

poverty and social exclusion in rural areas are similar to those in urban areas, but the causes of and solutions to poverty and social exclusion in Scotland’s rural areas can be very different. There is, therefore, a need to tailor the delivery of policies in rural areas to maximise effectiveness.

Postcode sectors were classified into four categories by rurality: urban, accessible rural, remote towns and remote rural. This classification was derived from one used in the Scottish Household Survey (Hope et al., ) and has previously been used to show urban–rural inequalities in health in Scotland (Levin, ; Levin & Leyland,   A recent investigation of poverty and social exclusion in rural Scotland (Rural Poverty and Inclusion Working Group, ) showed that physical isolation from social networks and support services, combined with an exaggerated culture of self-reliance, was thought to contribute to stress, anxiety and depression in rural areas.

The difficulties. Women living in Remote Rural Scotland have the lowest annual income of any group, and the largest median Gender Pay gap being at £5, Unemployment is lower in Rural Scotland than urban Scotland, and employment and activity rates are higher, though East Ayrshire in particular has unemployment far above the national average.

Rural out. According to Eveline Leeuwen in the book ‘Urban-Rural interactions: Towns as focus points in Rural Development, there are some key factors that distinguish rural areas from urban centers, but these factors vary greatly from country to country and from region to region.

The author begins by critically examining Scottish rural issues before going on to describe rural models of social work practice and discuss issues such as isolation, urban-rural differences, and community orientated practice.

He draws upon a wide range of material from the UK, Canada, USA and Australia. Individual chapters cover: children and families, adults, minorities (including Scottish. While multi-grade teaching is still common in many schools, particularly in primary education, increased government spending, better transport networks and higher social expectations have given way, in many instances, to larger schools with several classrooms, teachers and grades, and a greater variety of learning opportunities.

performed among the top growing regions in Scotland (). Scottish rural regions have lower GDP per capita levels (75% of national average) than intermediate and urban areas (83% and % respectively, figures) and lower than many OECD regions (all of them are in the first and second quartile among rural regions in 26 countries).

Definitions of Urban versus Rural Population Areas. Defining and characterizing urban and rural population areas can be a complicated task. There are over two dozen definitions of “rural” used by U.S.

government agencies (Bucholtz ).Three examples of such definitions are presented in table definitions have been applied in alcohol studies (with some of the related results. attention to the particular nature or configuration of problems present in rural locations (Shucksmith ).

The report presents an initial analysis of poverty and social exclusion in rural and urban areas of Scotland. It highlights similarities and differences, looking at broad rural/urban differences and at. Rural Sociology explores sociological and interdisciplinary approaches to emerging social issues and new approaches to recurring social issues affecting rural people and places.

It is the journal of the Rural Sociological Society. The definition of community development can be stated as, “The process of improving the social, economic, and cultural conditions of a village or small town.” Even this definition may come up short, but at least it addresses other facets of what the community is all about.

2. Differences between rural and urban.In order to better understand the data, we also developed a new, more in-depth classification system, which divides the country by its rural or urban characteristics rather than by geographic, or local authority boundaries*.

The report. Perhaps the most striking finding of the report is how similar the rural and urban economies of Scotland are. Dr Atterton said towns played a vital role in Scotland's rural and regional development, but were at risk of falling into a gap between urban and rural policies.
