In Australia, remoteness indicators have often been used to measure 'disadvantage'. The disadvantage is rarely critically discussed in the Australian literature. Rather it is described with a range of indicators, and from my view, just taken as a given. Remoteness is one of them. I'm interested in hearing from researchers who have considered these issues in other places.

I need to find a scale to measure self-reported urban vs. rural classification of my respondents - being a psychological variable, rather than a spatial or a locational one. In other words, whether they perceive themselves being a part of urban or rural community. 
This is simplified as my research will adopt basic urban/rural classification based on population: Rural areas = small towns with less than 50K inhabitants and urban areas = anything above.
If you have any specific academic pieces in mind, I would hugely appreciate them, because I`m struggling to find adequate measure.
Thank you in advance!

It seems that there are few papers recently using this concept, I wonder why.
Relevant answer
Answer
The term "Socialbrache" has been introduced in the 1970s both by social and landscape geographers to explain the then happening change in rural areas: More and more agricultural land was abandonned or signficantly underused. It turned out that the main motives for these changes were changes in the occupation of the villagers: Were they formerly full-time or part-time farmers their attitude towards agriculture changed with increasing occupation outside agriculture (e.g. in manufacturing). As a result, more and more land was not used properly.
In most west European countries this process has ended for several reasons: Existing farmers seek land, environmental protection schemes incl. subsidies allow for underusing, and part-time farming is established.
However, I have no idea about the East European countries: I can imagine that migration to cities, search for occupation outside the primary sector, and the reduced necessity to produce food for subsistence introduced these processes.

I need to make a survey in sport clubs like fitness, yoga, tennis, squash and swimming pools about participants' perception of their club's location. I'll make the research in a big (almost 1 mln) city.
Later on I would like to combine results with an agent based model (ABM) - get characteristics of participants and put in my ABM.
The best scenario would be to have a representative random sample, but it is impossible to get a full list of participants (sampling frame). There are only lists for fitness clubs and none for the others. Some of them come only occasionally.
Do you think it would be reasonable to randomly, proportionally choose sport clubs, regarding their type, later on randomly select hours of activities performed and make a survey with everyone who came at certain hour.
Would it give representative opinion for all participants? And could I then count a sampling error and confidence interval? How could I improve representativeness here?
I am also wondering how big my sample should be? Is 1000 questionaries enough? In fact I don't know how many participants are in those clubs. The only thing I could use here are quite new results of national survey - I can get characteristics of sport participants.
I would be grateful for any help.
Best regards,
Lukasz Kowalski

Answer
Lukasz, perhaps it will help if you first clearly define your population, that is you must have a set of criteria of your sports clubs to qualify as participants in your study. Maybe this will disqualify the "occasional:" ones. By making this set of criteria it may come that you may be able to determine your sampling frame.

I'm actually working on landscape representation and I am in a dead end definition with the term "institution".
I'm trying to shed ligth on a geographical approach of the relation between insitutional actors' representation of lanscape and other type of actors' representation of landscape. But what's fit in "institution" groups and what is outside this classification?
I think "Institution" is not appropriate but to be shure I have to define this term deeply.

Answer
Have you read K. Olwig's papers on landscape? I think they may prove helpful regarding "the relation bet. institutional and other actors" In particular:
