A Changing Rural and Urban America.
Haren, Claude C.
The implications of additional employment opportunities and population shifts in a large number of rural areas, principally the Southeast, East South Central, West North Central, and West, are discussed. Data are presented indicating the extent and regions in which economic growth brought recent employment peaks. Population statistics indicate that population trends since 1950 in both urban and rural areas have almost coincided with those occurring in employment. It is concluded that a workable solution to increasing population pressures appears to be the application of principles of close-knit community design, emphasizing a balanced combination of work opportunities, residential areas, and recreational facilities.
