Transportation Toolbox for Rural Areas and Small Communities
In 1998 the United States Department of Agriculture and the United States Department of Transportation signed a Memorandum of Understanding in which the agencies jointly agreed to address long-term agricultural transportation, rural passenger and freight mobility challenges. As a result of the Memorandum of Understanding, the agencies have pursued a variety of projects of mutual interest, including the development of this website. The Transportation Toolbox for Rural Areas and Small Communities was designed to assist public and private stakeholders in planning, developing, and improving rural areas and small communities, especially through transportation and related projects. It is a work in progress, and we welcome your suggestions

Composite Indicators of Poverty and Living Standards
Next theory - There are a number of single indicators that can be used to measure the extent to which the inhabitants of a country are experiencing poverty. These all focus on one area; either health, education, or income. A number of composite indicators have been developed that allow several indicators to be aggregated together to give a more general measure of poverty and living standards. The Physical Quality of Life Index (PQLI) In this index three single indicators were combined together; life expectancy at birth, infant mortality and literacy rates. For each indicator the performance of individual countries were rated on a scale of 1 to 100 where 1 represents the worst and 100 the best. There was a correlation with the GDP per capita however it was not as close as might be expected. The Human Development Index (HDI) This index, produced by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), includes indicators of longevity, knowledge and income. It combines life expectancy (at birth), an average of literacy rates and number of years of education and GDP expressed in terms of its purchasing power in the domestic economy. Some countries have shown rapid economic growth but have not shown correspondingly high HDI index.

The rural North West
Think of the North West and you might picture a region that is predominantly urban and industrialised but the reality is very different. About four-fifths of the area is rural and one in six of its 6.9 million inhabitants live in rural areas. The North West is a region of diverse character and its landscapes, wildlife and heritage are amongst our most precious assets. Some of the most beautiful scenery in England can be found here, with 29 per cent of the region's countryside designated for its nationally important landscapes. This diversity reflects the pattern of agriculture, ranging from the dairy farms of Cheshire, through arable and horticulture in south west Lancashire to beef and sheep farming in the uplands of north Lancashire and Cumbria. The agricultural industry plays a major role in shaping the region's landscapes but foot and mouth disease in 2001 had an extensive impact in the region, spreading far beyond farming. The outbreak highlighted the close relationships between agriculture, tourism and the provision of local services in rural areas. It emphasised the need to broaden the base of the region's rural economy to ensure a prosperous future. In common with the rest of England, the rural communities of the North West are also going through a period of great change. Although people who live in the countryside often enjoy a better quality of life, others suffer exclusion and isolation and some of the things people most value about life in the countryside are being eroded. In the North West, the Countryside Agency is working with partners to bring about a rural renaissance to achieve lasting economic, environmental and social improvements to people's quality of life.
