The 20% of the population on this map are considered to be the least disadvantaged in rural England.

These areas are those closest to cities where the divisions between the rural and urban economy blur. People living in these areas, the final fifth of the rural population, can have household incomes of more than 30,000. They predominantly include areas around Greater London and the routes north and west from the capital to other parts of the UK.
