The study of rural sociology can help in undrstanding & implementing the factors related to development of the rural area . ------------------------------------------ Sociology is the study of society and human social action. Rural sociology is a field of sociology associated with the study of life in small towns and the country. It is a scientific study of social arrangements and behaviour amongst peoples that are distanced from points of concentrated activity. Much of rural sociology involves the examination of statistical data. ----------------------------------------- A sociologist studies the social rules and processes that organize people in society as individuals and as members of associations, groups, and institutions, as well as how these rules and processes develop. Sociological research ranges from the analysis of short contacts between anonymous individuals on the street to the study of global social processes. Most sociologists work in one or more specialties or subfields. Additionally, sociology tends to deal with the how and why of society, while still looking at the when and where. ------------------------------------------- see more details here :
