Economic Disadvantage in Rural America | April 12, 2017, 1:00ΓÇô2:00 pm CDT
Rural and small-town America has been slower to recover from the Great Recession than U.S. metropolitan areas. This webinar from the Institute for Research on Poverty explores the general economic context in which rural Americans are embedded, with a focus on poverty and underemployment. It traces trends over recent decades, and explores possible causes (and solutions) to economic disadvantage in the rural United States.
The webinar will feature Brian Thiede, Assistant Professor of Rural Sociology and Sociology at Penn State University
