Abstract: That living conditions differ between urban and rural areas is often taken for granted. But what does it look like when we explore more manifest indicators of social exclusion and marginalization? Are these problems present also in rural areas? And if so, does the character of such problems problem vary depending on local settings? This paper delivers a short and summarizing review of some key indicators of living conditions in rural and urban areas in Sweden. It is shown that on most indicators problems are more frequent in the rural areas than in the bigger cities. It is also shown that the mortality rate is higher among socially excluded young adults in the rural areas as compared to their counterparts in the bigger cities.
