This book aims to acquaint researchers, primarily in local organizations, with data they can use to describe and better understand rural communities. Chapter 1 describes a few basic data concepts for readers who are not experienced data users. Chapter 2 provides an overview of major data sources that can be used to describe rural communities, including the Census Bureau's decennial and current population programs; the Census Bureau's agricultural, economic, and government censuses; personal income data from the Bureau of Economic Analysis; and labor market data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics. The chapter also explains where researchers can find data issued by these agencies, and where they can find more information by state or region. Chapters 3-5 show how researchers can use federal, state, and local data to understand social and economic change in very diverse rural communities. Data sources cover general population, education, labor force, income, housing, health, industry-specific data, and local government. Sample counties from the Economic Research Service County Typology groups are used to put the data sources in context. Appendices provide postal and electronic addresses and phone numbers for state and federal offices that house or collect data, and give details about Census Bureau publications and economic census programs. Contains 49 references, 36 data tables and figures, a glossary, and an index. (SV)
