Rural County Report. County Level Data Base.
Murray, J. Dennis
This report represents a county-level Pennsylvania data base focused on variables of significance to rural communities. The data includes computations of per capita rates for counties in rural, urban influence, and urban clusters. This report is intended for comparing rural counties to other areas of the state. Three categories are used to present the data: rural, urban-influenced, and urban. Rural counties are designated as having fewer than 75 people per square mile and fewer than 100,000 people; urban-influenced counties are designated as having more than 75 people per square mile and fewer than 200,000 people; urban clusters are designated as having more than 250 people per square mile or more than 200,000 people. Each of the 67 counties submitted data on approximately 90 variables covering population, vital statistics, housing, education, social indicators, crime, health, employment, unemployment, and personal earnings. Information can be reported from the data system for any single county in Pennsylvania. (LP)
