Rural settlement

The definition of a rural settlement depends on the country. In some countries, a rural settlement is any settlement in the areas defined as rural by a governmental office, e.g., by the national census bureau. This may include even rural towns. In some others, rural settlements traditionally do not include towns.

Common types of rural settlements are villages, hamlets and farms.

Traditionally, rural settlements were associated with agriculture. In modern times other types of rural communities have been developed.

Russia

A municipal rural settlement in Russia is a type of municipal formation.

The term "rural settlement" is also sometimes used either as a synonym for all rural localities, or for settlements of rural type in particular.
