Rural Povery Rate Declines, While Family Income Grows.
Dagata, Elizabeth M.
Rural Conditions and Trends, v11 n2 p62-67 Dec 2000
The rural poverty rate declined and family income grew in 1998, but poor family incomes declined considerably. Most rural poor families had at least one worker. Poor rural workers tended to work part-time, live in female-headed families, and have a high school education or less. Rural working poor families relied more on assistance programs than working nonpoor families. (TD)
