Description
 
Lawrence E. Wood & Gregory A. Bischak. Analyzes changes in distressed counties in Appalachia (AP) & the entire U.S. for the census years 1960, 1970, 1980, & 1990 based on a current distress measure. Distressed counties have poverty & unemploy. rates 1-1/2 times the nat. rates & with poor capital incomes that are 2/3 or less than the nat. rate. Provides a benchmark for socioecon. conditions in AP relative to the rest of the nation. Identifies macroecon. & regional trends that are assoc. with both distress & improvement in AP as well as the entire U.S. from 1960 to 1990. Analyzes the socioecon. factors that are assoc. with long-term distress, as well as factors that predict whether a county moved out of distress in the region.
