Rural Households Survey on the Cost of Living

The Rural Services Network and the Rural Issues Group of Citizens Advice are jointly running this survey to understand more about rural household budgets at, what is, a very difficult time for many. Research has shown that those living in rural areas face some extra costs and we now want to explore the impacts for households. But we need your help and want to receive as many survey responses as possible, whatever your household’s income or financial position. This will help us to engage more effectively with Government Departments, MPs and other policy makers.

This survey does not require you to give your name or contact details. Nonetheless, please be assured that your response will be treated confidentially by us. We will not share or publish any individual responses. The information that you and others supply will be stored carefully and will only be used to generate statistics. Completing the survey should take about ten minutes.

We understand if you are unable, or indeed unwilling, to give answers to some of the questions. Please complete those you can.
