Rural Areas Typology in Bulgaria
AbstractIn this study typology of rural areas is examined, on the base of the official definition applied in Bulgaria and the definition most often used in EU countries - the OECD definition. The latter definition delimits two levels - local and regional. The local includes LAU 1/2, which for Bulgaria is municipality or settlement (in this research municipality is used), and the regional level is NUTS 3 and corresponds to a district. Recommendations are made on the base of the established conclusions about the use of the concept "rural areas" and the necessity of change of the concept "municipality" is justified.
