Statistical Digest of Rural England 2013

The Statistical Digest of Rural Statistics is a collection of statistics on a range of social and economic subject areas. The statistics are split by rural and urban areas, allowing for comparisons between the different rural and urban area classifications. The Digest includes high level statistics which present an overall picture for England. However, there is likely to be considerable variation in individual towns, villages and hamlets.

The Digest starts with a section on the rural and urban populations in England. This is followed by a range of subjects, including social issues such as housing, broadband, crime and education. The economic section contains indicators on productivity, earnings and economic activity, as well as a selection of indicators relating to economic growth.
