Similar classifications have earlier been obtained for Riemann surfaces and Riemannian manifolds. We study the inclusions between these classes of metric measure spaces, and their relationship to the \(p\)-hyperbolicity of the metric space and its ends. In particular, we characterize spaces that carry nonconstant \(p\)-harmonic functions with finite \(p\)-energy as spaces having at least two well-separated \(p\)-hyperbolic sequences of sets towards infinity. We also show that every such space \(X\) has a function \(f
