New Report: Life in Rural America

The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) published a report this week with findings from a survey of rural adults “to understand the current views and experiences of rural Americans on economic and health issues.” (Click here for the 57 page report: New Report: Life in Rural America) Respondents were optimistic overall, citing positive job prospects and connection with their communities. Of the challenges in rural areas, more than 25 percent of those surveyed cited drug abuse as the biggest problem facing their local community. The second largest concern, at 21 percent, was economic, including poverty and the availability of jobs. The report challenges the idea that all rural Americans are the same and examines major differences between young and old, those with and without a college degree, and between White residents and minorities. Earlier this year, RWJF issued its annual County Health Rankings. That report included an explicit call to action for community leaders to examine local data and learn more about the social and economic factors in each community that impact health outcomes.
