Services for the populations: the relevance of the residential economy

In France, the increasing weight of jobs in services for the populations makes these service sectors an essential component of contemporary rural economics. Their development, which in the last decade asserted itself in the periurban municipalities and in predominantly rural areas, contributes significantly to the economic dynamics of the rural and periurban areas, with public services playing a central role. This rapid development has brought together the shops and services for the populations they serve; their accessibility, however, depends on the nature of the facilities and on their rationales of location.
