Two Types of Rural Poor Need Different Kinds of Help.
Ross, Peggy J.; Morrissey, Elizabeth S.
Rural Development Perspectives, v4 n1 p7-10 Oct 1987
The persistent poor make up only about a third of all the poor, and the rest are temporarily poor because of sudden changes in their lives--loss of job, marital breakup, or illness. The two groups of rural poor have different needs and will be helped by different types of programs. (JHZ)
