The History and Context of Rural Poverty.
Human Services in the Rural Environment, v10 n4, v11 n1 p12-14 Spr-Sum 1987

Low educational levels, poor health, lack of competitive job skills, and a mindset restricted by poverty give little hope for mobility--especially in communities devoid of opportunity and supportive services.
