Population Change in the Midwest: Nonmetro Population Growth Lags Metro Increase.
Rural America, v17 n2 p21-29 Sep 2002
Midwest population gains in the 1990s were eclipsed by other regions, and nonmetro areas fared worse than metro counties. Less populous and more isolated counties were more likely to lose residents and to lose youth. The Midwest gained Hispanic residents in the 1990s, but numerical increases were much larger in metro counties. Implications for policymakers are discussed. (TD)
