Socioeconomic Heterogeneity of Mining-Dependent Counties.
Nord, Mark; Luloff, A. E.
Rural Sociology, v58 n3 p492-500 Fall 1993
Although the socioeconomic well-being of all U.S. mining-dependent counties was slightly above the national average in 1990, disaggregation reveals substantial effects of region and mining subsector. In particular, southern and Great Lakes coal-mining counties had significantly lower high school graduation rates and higher poverty and unemployment rates relative to other rural same-state counties.
