Cost of Living Household Survey – Rural Focus


Rebecca Palmer


A Rural Cost of Living Household Survey wants to understand the impact of extra costs on rural households.

The Rural Services Network (RSN), in partnership with the Citizens Advice Rural Issues Group, recently launched a Rural Cost of Living Household Survey. Independent research shows rural areas are suffering more acutely from the cost of living crisis than urban areas.

RSN asks rural residents to complete a Household Survey to understand more about rural household budgets at this challenging time. Information from this survey will help organisations to add extra weight to calls for more funding.

The survey needs to receive as many responses as possible, whatever your household’s income or financial position. The results will help effectively engage with Government Departments, MPs and other policy makers.

Please complete the questions you can and forward the survey link to your contacts, networks, family and friends living in rural areas. The greater the response, the better. Have your say!

The survey closes on 31st March 2023.
