Analysis of Industrial Areas Effects in Rural Development: a Case Study of Iran
Rural industrialization means technical changes to improve quality of life for current generations of rural population. The purpose of this research was to investigate the impact of industrial areas on the development of rural regions (case study: Farahan industrial area in Iran). The research was conducted in the form of survey study. The populations of the research included employers in the industrial area, numbering to 236 by the selection procedure of random sampling. Data were collected through a questionnaire. The reliability of the questionnaire was calculated using a Cronbach alpha coefficient (alpha >0.85) for different sections after conducting a pilot study. In recent studies, it has been indicated that Farahan industrial area has considerable significance in the rural regions nearby. It has attracted a considerable amount of unemployed population from nearby villages and therefore plays a great role in developing their quality of life.
