Rural Poverty Still High.
Hoppe, Robert
Rural Conditions and Trends, v3 n1 p16-17 Spr 1992
The rural poverty rate rose 0.6 percent in 1990 to 16.3 percent, compared to 12.7 percent for urban areas. All nonmetro population groups had higher poverty rates than metro counterparts. About 43 percent of nonmetro families headed by women were poor. The Family Support Act may help such families. (SV)
