Over one third of the Ukrainian population is living in the rural area, yet the rural people’s living conditions are significantly different from those of urban inhabitants, primarily due to the inequality in income distribution. Even larger gap exists between them and residents of EU member countries, including the less developed ones, while the cost of living in Ukraine is at the same level as in EU and in the case of certain products and services it is even more expensive. Therefore, the present article is devoted to the analysis of the rural population’s incomes and expenses, to their structures and peculiarities. The data on rural population in five economic regions of Ukraine were analyzed in order to define the regional differences.
