Low-Wage Counties Face Locational Disadvantages.
Gibbs, Robert; Cromartie, John B.
Rural Conditions and Trends, v11 n2 p18-26 Dec 2000
Small populations and remoteness are the most salient features of low-wage counties. These locational attributes coincide with fewer high-wage jobs, yet low wages within industries define low-wage counties more than industry composition. Although adults in low-wage counties have less education and labor force participation overall, the role played by these forces varies by region. (Author/TD)
