The determinants of quality of life in rural areas
What is it about?
This paper demonstrates that the accessibility to essential services is crucial for the viability of rural areas. The accessibility has been assessed from a geography perspective i.e. the average distance between houses and the closest service (schools, hospitals, kindergartens).
Why is it important?
The findings are relevant because demonstrate that in case the basic services' accessibility is not adequate, the abandonment of rural areas is unavoidable.
