This bibliography lists materials available from the National Agricultural Library's (NAL) AGRICOLA database that relate to rural poverty in the United States.

The 219 citations include the NAL call number, author, place of publication, publisher, journal information, media format, language, and descriptors. In some cases, an abstract is included. Materials are concerned with children, economic conditions, economic development, rural education, employment, health care, household income, rural housing, labor market, minority groups, poverty, rural communities, rural conditions, rural development, rural economy, women, and the rural poor. Also provides information on the Rural Information Center, a joint project of NAL and the Extension Service; document delivery services to individuals; and electronic mail access for interlibrary loan requests.
