Prepared by the Task Force on Rural Development Research (appointed by the U.S. Department of Agriculture), this analytical directory gives primary emphasis to 133 Rural Development 1 (RD1) research projects which were "active" projects between January 1 and June 30, 1973 in 13 Northeastern state agricultural experiment stations and the 2 land-grant colleges of 1890 in this 12 state region. Also included in this analysis are eight current projects conducted by the Economic Research Service; information on projects conducted by the Agricultural Research Service at Beltsville or Hyattsville, Maryland or elsewhere in the Northeast; and information relative to 47 "terminated" rural development projects conducted by the Northeast land-grant colleges. Current RD1 projects in the Northeast land-grant institutions are presented via tabulations which describe 13 substantive area classifications (economic development; community services; housing; local government; manpower; education and training; low income--poverty; social organization; land-use and land-use policy; environmental quality; waste materials; water; and other). Analysis indicates that of the 133 projects so classified, the greatest RD1 research interests lie in the areas of economic development, land-use and land-use policy, low income--poverty, and community services.
