    The analysis of the quality of life aspects, expressed through the indicators, by branch and by regions, allow to observe their contribution to economic and social development in rural area at national and community level. The analyzed indicators are: population density, age structure of the population, economic development (gross domestic product /capita), structure of economy (gross value added by branch), structure of employment, employment rate, unemployment and the long-term unemployment.The analysis of indicators is realised at NUTS 3 (county level) by types of regions. The determining of types of regions (“predominantly rural regions” - PR, “intermediate regions” - IR and “predominantly urban regions” - PU) is corresponding to NUTS 3 county level, which are based on a revised urban-rural typology. The comparative analysis of economic-social aspects, for Romania and for other EU countries highlights the gaps by types of regions (PR, IR and PU) and by branch (primary sector, secondary sector, tertiary sector), what allows the focusing the efforts to reduce them.
