The growing body of work demonstrating the advantages conferred on rural communities with urban linkages clearly indicates that, to adequately capture the variation within rural Alberta, it is important to examine rural conditions along the dimension of level of urban integration. The over-time analysis in the previous Rural Alberta Profile (2004) demonstrated that between 1991 and 2001 the economic disparity increased between the most and least economically integrated rural regions of Alberta. Hence, the addition of 2006 data for this analysis provides a longer term and therefore more robust measure of over time change. The analysis also provides an indication of whether different geographic zones within rural Alberta have benefited in the same way as urban Alberta, given the strong economic cycle experienced in the province between 2001 and 2006.
