Rural People in the American Economy.
Economic Research Service (USDA), Washington, DC.
An initial report of the Economic Development Division analyzes rural America from a number of viewpoints: size and characteristics of the rural population, well-being of the rural population, ways of life and making a living, troubled areas, current economic changes, and future prospects. The publication deals briefly with the history of the rural population; it then concerns itself with factors affecting the participation of rural people in the nation's development, emphasizing considerations important to the future of rural America. In addition to the maps and charts in the body of the document, pertinent literature is cited and an appendix of numerous statistical tables is included. (DB)
