Abstract (Rezumat în limba engleză): The study proposes a cultural typology of Romanian villages, relevant for the variation of choice behavior. The presence of relevant others within the village is the basic dimension of generating the typology. Starting from this hypothesis we identified six cultural types of villages with specific cultural profiles associated with imigration, ethnic minorities, religious minorities, high education stock, ecological isolation and traditionallity. The data for the analysis were from different censuses. Temporay migration abroad of the villagers is significantly differentiated function of the cultural type of community.
