Workers with Higher Literacy Skills Not As Well Rewarded in Rural Areas.
Greenberg, Elizabeth J.; And Others
Rural Development Perspectives, v10 n3 p45-52 Jun 1995
According to the 1992 National Adult Literacy Survey, rural workers score somewhat lower than urban workers in ability to use written and quantitative materials. However, scores of rural and urban young adults are similar, reflecting recent improvements in rural education. Rural workers earn less than urban workers with similar literacy skills; this gap increases at higher literacy levels. (Author/SV)
