Typology of Scottish Towns

Typology of Scottish Towns

Scotland In Focus 2012We are helping to develop a typology to help illustrate and understand the ongoing challenges and opportunities facing Scotland’s towns.

Developing a typology of places based on socio-economic indicators would reflect key demographic and economic characteristics.

Policy-makers would then be better informed about the best way to address these through policy and funding support.

Such a typology would also allow longitudinal analysis to be undertaken to see how different places respond in different ways to change.
