Settlements and services in rural Scotland

R D P Smith

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


    Uses a survey of facilities throughout Scotland for both the 1950s and 1981 and then association analysis to produce four types of Scottish settlements based on their service provision: ultra-rural settlements; upland townships; middle ground villages; and lowland urban settlements. Other factors like unemployment and transport are then introduced for the 1981 data to produce a more accurate classification, which it is argued could be used to identify those places where rationalisation of services would be desirable. -A.Gilg
