POPULATION TRENDS IN POST-RECESSION RURAL AMERICA SERIES
We are very pleased to announce the inaugural brief of the Population Trends in Post-Recession Rural America series! The briefs provide information about current trends confronting rural people and their communities in the United States. The briefs present cutting edge research in a way that is useful for and accessible to policy makers, community development practitioners, local governments, community groups and organizations, and other decision-makers.
The inaugural brief, How the Great Recession Changed U.S. Migration Patterns by Kenneth M. Johnson, Katherine J. Curtis, and David Egan-Robertson, discusses how the economic shocks of the housing-market crisis and Great Recession were associated with striking changes in net migration patterns in both rural and urban America.
Subsequent briefs will be released on a rolling basis and can be found on the series website Population Trends in Post-Recession Rural America series. Upcoming briefs will cover trends in differential health care access among rural Hispanics and how trends in age-specific migration have impacted rural areas. We will announce new contributions to the series when they are released and we invite you to check the series site often!
Current contributors are members of the W3001 project funded by WAAESD. We invite contributions from researchers examining population trends in contemporary rural America. Inquiries regarding submissions and any other questions about the series can be sent to the editorial committee at W3001@dces.wisc.edu
