Rural Pockets of Poverty.
Weinberg, Daniel H.
Rural Sociology, v52 n3 p398-408 Fall 1987
Regression results reveal there are geographic determinants of poverty. Even when demographic, labor-market, institutional, and fiscal correlates of poverty are controlled for, counties bordering high-poverty counties have poverty rates 3.4-3.8 percentage points higher simply because of their location. Economic development resources should focus on the problems of multicounty areas. (NEC)
