Nonmetro Areas Fall Behind in the "New Economy."
Gale, Fred; McGranahan, David
Rural America, v16 n1 p44-52 May 2001
Employment and earnings increased in nonmetro areas during the 1990s, but less than in urban areas. The metro-nonmetro earnings gap reached a historical high in 1998 as businesses that used advanced technologies avoided rural locations where professional and skilled workers were in short supply. Metro and nonmetro employment and income data by region and industrial sector are included. (SV)
