Economic performance in rural England, Regional Studies. Measuring rural economic performance is obscured by the simultaneous use of two spatial platforms: the 'city-region' and the 'rural definition'. The characteristics of these spatial platforms for measuring rural economic performance are explored through plant-level productivity data. In general, English rural districts are less productive, but particularly where they are both lagging and fall outside city-regions. The city-region platform exacerbates rural productivity performance, but since 2000, rural districts have not been charged with pursuing productivity objectives anyway.
