Population change and rural society

Archived Abstract of Former PSC Researcher

Johnson, Nan. 2007. "Population change and rural society." Rural Sociology, 72(2): 322-324.

The organizing principle for this book is the Social Demographic perspective with a focus on the United States, and treats net migration from or to rural America as the demographic driver of changes in the age, sex, and racial/ethnic composition of rural America (Chapter 3 by Kirschner et al.), in rural industrial structure (Chapter 4 by Vias and Nelson), in the decline of numbers and acres of farmland and its regional variations (Chapter 5 by Pfeffer et al.), and in the spatial distribution of poverty (Chapter 6 by Jensen et al.).
