Minimum standard of living cash requirements are higher for people living in rural locales.
More money is needed by people living in remote regions to fund their living costs.
Residents of rural areas need to take home up to 20% more money than urban dwellers to reach an acceptable standard of living, according to a new report.
The Commission for Rural Communities found that a person living in the countryside needs to earn at least £18,600 a year to afford a minimum standard of living, which is £4,200 more than a person living in the city. People living in villages need £17,900 a year and those living in rural towns need £15,600, indicating that the further people live from urban regions the more cash they need to live a comfortable life.
