Abstract


Though in the developed economies there is a trend to remove differences between rural and urban from the points of view of accommodation, infrastructure development, and ensuring services necessary for the population, which has resulted in a loss of significance of the traditional perception of the rural area as underdeveloped area, in Romania there is still a major discrepancy between rural and urban which is not beneficial for the Romanian rural area.
Starting from these premises, we think that an analysis of the life quality in the Romanian rural area is opportune, taking into account that in the 12,946 villages of present Romania live over 45% (about 9.7 million inhabitants) of Romania’s population in conditions unbelievable for the 21st century and for the 3rd millennium when science and technology are very advanced worldwide in all the fields of activity; this is also the time in which globalisation as a phenomenon resulted in economic integration both regionally and worldwide as a result
of the large-scale promotion of information technologies (e.g. the Internet), of the removal of artificial barriers from the circulation of goods, services, capital, knowledge, and people.

Keywords
