Research Briefing: a brief overview of current research activities by the Market Towns Research Group at the University of Plymouth, England.
Sample reports from the baseline studies. These provide profiles of Bude - a seaside town and holiday resort in North Cornwall - and Liskeard - a somewhat larger town 28 miles west of Plymouth.
Datasets (in SPSS format) for Bude and Liskeard. We encourage you to download these data and use them, particularly if you are seeking to compare these towns with others that you are studying, but please note the requirements and conditions on the page describing the data.
Sample conference papers and articles based on the Market Towns research (soon).
