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.
The February 2013 publication includes updates on:
- Health (infant mortality rate),
- Housing (house building, homelessness & temporary accommodation and private rental affordability).
