Most people have a clear impression of what the cities, towns and countryside look like in the UK, both physically and in terms of the lives of the people who live there. This article compares rural and urban areas statistically for themes such as working, earnings, services and population, using geographical classifications. There is quantitative evidence that rural areas are better off than urban areas on a number of different measures, such as unemployment and crime, but there are substantial differences within both rural and urban areas. In a few respects rural areas are worse off. Analysis indicates that house prices are less affordable to local workers in rural areas than urban areas and the costs, travel time and carbon emissions resulting from transport tend to be higher in rural areas. Patterns within urban areas often differ, with the most urban areas of England frequently showing different trends from those in other places, and the widest variations.

Large demographic shifts are reshaping America. But according to a new analysis by Pew Research Center, these trends are playing out differently across community types. Urban areas are at the leading edge of racial and ethnic change, with nonwhites now a clear majority of the population in urban counties while solid majorities in suburban and rural areas are white. Urban and suburban counties are gaining population due to an influx of immigrants in both types of counties, as well as domestic migration into suburban areas. In contrast, rural counties have made only minimal gains since as the number of people leaving for urban or suburban areas has outpaced the number moving in.
G20 Japan. The current debate on global inequality and social cohesion has also recognized growing differences in living standards between urban and rural areas. This policy brief discusses factors contributing to the urban-rural divide and recommends policies to facilitate the process of catching up.

Home medical care HMC is advancing not only in Japan but also throughout the world. In Japan, HMC waste is legally classified as municipal waste.

Second, is there a difference between a large city and a small city in terms of appropriate disposal progress? A total of municipalities published the treatment of HMC waste.

Constantinos A. Loucaides, Sue M. This study attempted to examine differences in physical activity levels between urban and rural primary school children. Parents completed a questionnaire assessing environmental variables in both seasons. Parents of children in rural schools reported more space available in the garden and in the neighbourhoods, and safer neighbourhoods than parents of children in urban schools, whereas children in urban schools had more exercise equipment available at home and were transported more frequently to places where they could be physically active. Results of this study suggest that intervention programmes to promote physical activity need to consider seasonal and geographical location differences in physical activity levels.
Metrics details. There is evidence that rural residents experience a health disadvantage compared to urban residents, associated with a greater prevalence of health risk factors and socioeconomic differences. Data were collected from respondents in two rural areas Haldimand-Norfolk, Ontario and Annapolis Valley-Kings County, Nova Scotia and respondents in five urban areas Vancouver, Edmonton, Toronto, Montreal, and Halifax using a h recall diary and supplementary questionnaires administered using computer-assisted telephone interviews. We evaluated differences in time-activity patterns, occupational activity, and housing characteristics between rural and urban populations using multivariable linear and logistic regression models adjusted for design as well as demographic and socioeconomic covariates. Taylor linearization method and design-adjusted Wald tests were used to test statistical significance. After adjustment for demographic and socioeconomic covariates, rural children, adults and seniors spent on average 0.
