Living in poverty in rural areas

Research output: Contribution to specialist publicationArticle

Abstract

Statistics on poverty in rural and urban Scotland have recently
been published which show the percentage of individuals in low
income households to be broadly similar in both rural and urban
areas1. Understanding rural poverty is a key component of rural
development. Yet there is no clear understanding of what living
in poverty in rural areas is like and how that might differ from the
experience of living in poverty in urban areas. The aim of this study,
which was commissioned by the Scottish Government, was to
identify what factors trigger poverty and what the particular barriers
are to moving out of poverty in rural areas.
