Beaulieu, Lionel J.; Barfield, Melissa A.; Stone, Katherine L.
Rural America, v15 n4 p28-35 Feb 2001

Rural-urban differences in educational attainment were even greater among minorities. The rural-urban income gap also widened and is not expected to improve, with few new high-skill rural jobs projected. (SV)
