 Abstract
This study analyzed settlement condition changes of Chungcheong region`s mountain area during 10 years, from 2001 to 2012. We performed factor analysis and cluster analysis of data from the `Census for Mountain Area` carried out by the Korea Forest Service in 2001 and 2012. Factors 1, 2, 3, and 4 represent `the superiority of non-agricultural income`, `the industrialized mountainous area`, `residential conveniences and benefits`, and `the use of forest resources`, respectively. Clusters 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5 are categorized as `non-agricultural income`, `various mass social functions`, `production of forest products`, `industrialized mountainous region`, and `ordinary mountain region`, respectively. We suggest that cluster 1 has potential for development and should be promoted as a possible tourist attraction by digging up geographically unique themes. Cluster 2 has great potential for development and needs planned management through the maintenance or expansion of existing infrastructure. Cluster 3 has potential for development with various high value added industries uncovered. Cluster 4 shows vitality as it holds plenty of more job opportunities than other regions. Cluster 5 is deteriorating as a mountainous region because of an aging population, and it urgently demands development. For a decade, 45 of the 60 regions belonged to a single category, which are now differentiated broadly into two types: Firstly, deterioration changes to potential development and Secondly, vitality is differentiated into potential development and deterioration.
