Rural Sociology, v56 n4 p565-602 Win 1991
Among 2,349 nonmetropolitan U.S. counties, poverty levels varied inversely with size of family farms but were little affected by industrialized farming when nonfarm sociodemographic variables were controlled. Farming patterns had less effect on rural poverty than the local employment structure, population characteristics, and geographic location. Contains 63 references. (SV)
