This paper explores some recent manifestations of regional inequalities in the rural space of Israel. The Israeli rural space is largely made up of planned settlements, which were originally based on a principle of equal opportunity to all settlers to attain an average predetermined level of income. It is a preliminary attempt to examine a number of dimensions of inequality that exist in the rural space in Israel, and to identify the underlying factors that may explain these inequalities. The basic spatial unit under consideration is the regional council, and the data analysis produced three distinct clusters of regional councils which exhibit different levels of economic and social development. These differences are explained in part by diverse locational and population characteristics. – (BJ)
