Abstract: In Roma­nia, at the lev­el of res­i­den­tial envi­ron­ments there are gaps in terms of qual­i­ty of life, these are reflect­ed through socio-eco­nom­ic indi­ca­tors. The degree of pover­ty is high in rur­al areas, deter­mined by both eco­nom­ic and demo­graph­ic, social and cul­tur­al fac­tors. It is known that incomes are much low­er in rur­al areas than in urban areas, which is evi­denced by the increas­ing trends in the pover­ty rate in rur­al areas, both com­pared to urban areas and com­pared to the Euro­pean aver­age. All this leads to the accen­tu­a­tion of the dis­crep­an­cies between the two res­i­dence envi­ron­ments, as well as the accen­tu­a­tion of the phe­nom­e­non of social exclu­sion. The paper aims to car­ry out a descrip­tive sta­tis­ti­cal analy­sis of the socio-demo­graph­ic and eco­nom­ic aspects of the qual­i­ty of life in the Roman­ian coun­try­side. To car­ry out the study, the demo­graph­ic, social and eco­nom­ic sta­tis­ti­cal indi­ca­tors from the TEMPO Online data­base of the Nation­al Insti­tute of Sta­tis­tics (INS) were processed and inter­pret­ed.
Key­words:  Roma­nia, devel­op­ment, rur­al, urban, qual­i­ty of life.
