Rural insights: residents survey 2010

On 8 March 2010, the Commission for Rural Communities (CRC) published the results of a comprehensive survey, conducted in late 2009, on the perceptions and priorities of rural people. The survey provides detailed information on the views of residents across rural England and comparisons with the views of people who live in urban areas.

Of particular value, it allows direct comparisons to be made with the results of the 2006 survey. As such, the current survey seeks to furnish a better understanding of people’s views on how things are in their communities; on the changes they have experienced recently; and the hopes, concerns and aspirations of rural residents.
