Rural Condition and Trends, v6 n1 Spr 1995 - v9 n2 Feb 1999
This document consists of ten consecutive issues of the serial "Rural Trends and Conditions," extending from Spring 1995 through February 1999. Issues contain information and statistical data on rural economic and social conditions. Beginning with the Fall 1995 issue, issues exhibit repeating themes such as "Financial Institutions", "Rural Industry", "Federal Programs", "Socioeconomic Conditions." While the conditions and trends described in this serial will be of general interest to rural educators, there is little material directly related to education. The "Federal Programs" issues (v7 n2 and v8 n1) usually have a single chapter on "Education and Training." The financial issues usually contain some data pertaining to earnings and educational level of hired farm labor. The socioeconomic issues for this period contain population and migration data showing that the rural "brain drain" that involved loss of college-educated people from rural areas during the 1980s is no longer evident in the late 1990s.
