CAMARERO, Luis  and  PINO, Julio A. del. Rurality, agriculture and social exclusion. The territorial inequality effects. Rev. Cien. Soc. [online]. 2021, vol.34, n.49, pp.11-34.  Epub Dec 01, 2021. ISSN 0797-5538.

In general, social exclusion in rural areas is attributed to economic backwardness. The paper examines the rural-urban habitat contribution over the factors that produce vulnerability. The AROPE index -risk of poverty and exclusion- is analyzed by a logistic regression model that considers -socio-demographic household structures and agrarian bonding- as factors and their interaction with the habitat as a moderator variable. The findings show, by one hand, rural habitat reduces the vulnerability differences producing a less unequal environment among inhabitants. By another hand, it implies the internalization inside the households of the inequalities in the access of the rural population to the welfare services.

Keywords : de-agrarianization; social exclusion; rural habitat; welfare.
