Household Poverty in Rural and Metropolitan-Core Areas of the United States.
Brown, David L.; Hirschl, Thomas A.
Rural Sociology, v60 n1 p44-66 Spr 1995
Data from the Panel Study of Income Dynamics (1985 wave) indicate that rural households have the highest probability of poverty, followed by metropolitan-core households. Household factors (educational attainment, family structure, age, minority status) and the local opportunity structure were important determinants of poverty, but controlling for these determinants did not eliminate rural-urban differences.
