Dagata, Elizabeth M.
Rural Conditions and Trends, v8 n2 p35-39 1997
Current Population Survey data indicate that rural workers were more likely than urban workers to be poor or near-poor. Poor and near-poor rural workers were more likely than other workers to be southern, young, and in a minority group. Barriers to livable-wage employment included low educational attainment, being a single mother, and having young children. (SV)
