Personal Well-Being in Rapid Growth and Stable Communities: Multiple Indicators and Contrasting Results.
Krannich, Richard S.; Greider, Thomas
Rural Sociology, v49 n4 p541-52 Win 1984
Using three distinct indicators of well-being, differences and similarities are examined between a Wyoming boom town and a Utah non-boom community. Results provide evidence of disruption on only one indicator and highlight the importance of disaggregating boom town populations into distinct subpopulations when assessing effects of rapid growth.
