Rurality is the state or quality of being rural. When applied to communities, it differentiates places with low population density and a rural character from those which are part of a town or city.

MAST includes information on the rurality of home communities of drivers and casualties. The definition used follows a classification defined by the Office of National Statistics. Under this classification, built-up areas with a population of over 10,000 are defined as urban.

The dimensions which use this information include Driver Home Rurality and Casualty Home Rurality. They derive the classification from the small area in which the driver or casualty postcode lies.
