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 January 2013 publication includes updates on:
- Economic indicators (productivity, GVA, employment and economic activity, investment, skills, enterprise and business demography)
- Indicators for living in rural areas (poverty and fuel poverty)
