Rural living: an idylic state? A survey of images of rural areas and rural living preferences of urban people

Tijdschrift voor Sociaalwetenschappelijk Onderzoek van de Landbouw 15(5): 185-198

Results of a survey carried out among 1057 urban residents in a middle to high income area of the Netherlands are presented. The survey aimed to assess whether people living in urban areas have a preference for living in the countryside. Results show a significant preference for living in a rural area, with perceptions about the countryside very positive. Implications of this for the rural housing market are considered.
