Income Inequality in America: Nonmetro Income Levels Lower Than Metro, but Income Inequality Did Not Increase as Fast.
McLaughlin, Diane K.
Rural America, v17 n2 p14-20 Sep 2002
The gap in household income between nonmetro households and those in other locations increased between 1979 and 1999, as did disparities by race and ethnicity across residence. Industrial restructuring, increased demand for more-educated workers, changing household structure, and women's labor force participation may influence income levels and inequality differently across geographic areas and across racial and ethnic groups.
