Percentage of persons resident in rural and rural related OAs (9190) Metric type

Help text
The percentage of the resident population living in rural and rural related (Hub Towns) settlements as at Census day. Hub towns are built-up areas (from Ordnance Survey mapping) with a population of 10,000 to 30,000 (2011 Census) and a certain concentration of residential dwellings and non-residential establishments which have the potential to be centres of business and service provision for a surrounding rural area.

It is important to note that the categorisation is not describing the physical character or landscape, but the extent to which the resident population live in urban or rural and rural-related settlement. This metric is derived from the lower level classification (Output Areas (OAs); Super Output Areas (SOAs) and wards) to arrive at the higher level designation.
