What is Regional Science

Regional science is a subfield of the social sciences that focuses on the application of analytical methods to problems that are specific to urban, rural, or regional settings. Location theory or spatial economics, location modeling, transportation, migration analysis, land use and urban development, interindustry analysis, environmental and ecological analysis, resource management, urban and regional policy analysis, geographical information systems, and spatial data analysis are some of the topics that fall under the purview of regional science. However, this list is not exhaustive. Regional scientists are open to any social scientific investigation that incorporates a geographical component, in the broadest definition of the term.
