The secondary research on rural sub-regional tourism is investigating the determining factors and the relationships between them. The analysis concentrates on the tourism potential of rural sub-regions and the performance of tourism. We used the method of discriminant analysis for classifying observations into two or more groups based on the specified predictors. Output includes the classification matrix, the squared distance between group centers, the linear discriminant function, means standard deviations, covariance matrices, and a summary of how each observation was classified. After that, we have classified rural sub-regions according to their strategies of tourism development. The strategy of development for sub-regions belonging to the same group should be the same. This classification can be a useful basis for the conceptions of rural development and development of tourism.
