Publication: W.K. Kellogg Foundation
The University of New Hampshire’s Carsey Institute has released the first in a series of rural reports as part of the Institute’s Investing in Rural America’s Families and Communities Project. The first report, titled “Demographic Trends in Rural and Small Town America,” was authored by Kenneth M. Johnson, a Professor of Sociology at Loyola University-Chicago. The Investing in Rural America’s Families and Communities Project includes the publication of in-depth regional reports analyzing demographic and economic changes since World War II, and their impact on the vitality of rural communities, changing values and politics, and connections between urban, suburban, and rural issues. The project’s publications are funded in part through a W.K. Kellogg Foundation grant. A link to this report, released in 2006, can be found at http://www.carseyinstitute.unh.edu/Investingrural.html.
