A rural settlement is any settlement in the areas defined as rural by a governmental office, e.g., by the national census bureau. This may include even rural towns. In some others, rural settlements traditionally do not include towns. Common types of rural settlements are villages, hamlets and farms.

Precise Definition
A settlement can be considered rural where the greater part of the working population is employed in primary sector activities; rural homes may be isolated from one another (dispersed) or clustered together in small groups (hamlets) or larger villages.
