Rural Sociology

Rural sociology is a field of sociology associated with the study of social life in non-metropolitan areas. More concisely, it is the scientific study of social arrangements and behaviour amongst people distanced from points of concentrated population or economic activity. Like any sociological discipline, rural sociology involves the examination of statistical data, interviews, social theory, observation, survey research, and many other techniques.
