Comparative analyses of response data are presented by program category, institutional location, and type of institutional control. Measures of central tendency (mean and median, the limits of response ranges, and frequency distributions are used in the presentation of the survey response data. The survey considered the type of degree, the numbers and ...

A Rural-Urban Comparison Of Preferences Expressed By Elders For Long-Term Care Arrangements, William J. Mcauley, Rosemary Blieszner Dec 1986

A Rural-Urban Comparison Of Preferences Expressed By Elders For Long-Term Care Arrangements, William J. Mcauley, Rosemary Blieszner

Journal of Rural Social Sciences

This paper examines the long-term care (LTC) arrangements selected by rural older people, identifies the characteristics associated with their selections, and compares patterns of selection and related factors with those of elderly urban residents. The research is based upon 1,240 cases selected from a larger statewide area probability sample of noninstitutionalized persons at least 60 years old. Results, based upon tabular and logistic regression analysis, suggest that older rural residents are more likely than their urban counterparts to select LTC arrangements that involve both formal and informal forms of care as well as arrangements that are more likely to ...

Selection Factors In Housing Among Rural Low-To-Moderate Income Residents, Kenneth J. Gruber, Ann R. Hiatt, Gladys G. Shelton Dec 1986

Selection Factors In Housing Among Rural Low-To-Moderate Income Residents, Kenneth J. Gruber, Ann R. Hiatt, Gladys G. Shelton

Journal of Rural Social Sciences

Growth in rural areas has increased the need to examine more closely the quality and acceptability of different types of existing housing. This study focuses on the reasons rural residents moved to their housing and whether their needs were satisfied by their selections. Comparisons of reasons for moving among conventional home, mobile home, and apartment residents indicated similar motivations for housing choices. Comparisons of present housing satisfaction revealed that a large majority of all respondents selected housing that met their needs. The results suggest that despite the predominant preference for single-family conventionally built homes, a substantial portion of future housing ...


Income Security Policy And The Nonmetro Poor, Susan Bentley Dec 1986

Income Security Policy And The Nonmetro Poor, Susan Bentley

Journal of Rural Social Sciences

Income security in the United States is affected by both income transfer policy and tax policy. Transfer payments have reduced the incidence of poverty in the United States. The nonmetro poverty rates, however, remains higher than the metro poverty rate, even after considering growing in-kind transfers. Additionally, nonmetro areas depend heavily on transfer payments for personal income. Because adjustments in tax policy have not kept pace with inflation, the working poor have paid an increasing share of their income in taxes. This is particularly important for nonmetro areas, as most of their poor families contain at least one worker. The ...


Impact Of Farm Policies On Agriculture, Farm Structure, And Rural Communities, Ronald D. Knutson, James W. Richardson, Edward G. Smith Dec 1986

Impact Of Farm Policies On Agriculture, Farm Structure, And Rural Communities, Ronald D. Knutson, James W. Richardson, Edward G. Smith

Journal of Rural Social Sciences

This paper discusses the economic, technological, and political factors affecting farm and rural community structure. It concludes that the economic and technological pressures leading to a more concentrated commercial agriculture are strong and political choices to the contrary will likely fail. This conclusion implies an increased need for pragmatic transition policies.


Influence Of The Community Economic Base On Off-Farm Employment, Gregory S. Taylor, Mike D. Woods Dec 1986

Influence Of The Community Economic Base On Off-Farm Employment, Gregory S. Taylor, Mike D. Woods

Journal of Rural Social Sciences

Current research indicates the prevalence of off-farm employment among United States farm families creates an important linkage between farm and nonfarm sectors of the economy. The contention is that the nonfarm sector contributes through this medium to the economic viability of the farm sector. Despite the relevance of this linkage, few attempts have been made to further specify its nature. This study examines the extent and source (by industry) of off-farm employment in Texas nonmetropolitan counties, classified by their economic base. Data are from the 1980 Census of Population and the classification of nonmetro counties developed by ERS, USDA. The ...


Traditional And Non-Traditional Explanations Of Food Consumption: The Case Of Beef, Patricia K. Guseman, William Alex Mcintosh, Stephen G. Sapp Dec 1986

Traditional And Non-Traditional Explanations Of Food Consumption: The Case Of Beef, Patricia K. Guseman, William Alex Mcintosh, Stephen G. Sapp

Journal of Rural Social Sciences

Changes in the consumption of many foods, particularly beef, underlie the recent interest in isolating factors explaining these trends. This study focuses on three orienting explanations for differential beef consumption--microeconomic, social structural, and risk reduction perspectives. Consumption is defined by past and anticipated future utilization of beef, as well as present beef consumption relative to possible substitutes. While the microeconomic model is the most useful for isolating an individual's beef intake, it is clear that consumption behavior is dependent on more than income and supply factors. Social structural and risk reduction perspectives increase by 83 percent the R² found ...


The All New This Old South, Leann M. Tigges, Gary P. Green Dec 1986

The All New This Old South, Leann M. Tigges, Gary P. Green

Journal of Rural Social Sciences

Recent claims concerning the rise of the Sunbelt closely resemble those previously made about the New South. It is assumed that the South has finally broken the ties of dependency with the North and has embarked on a remarkable path of self-sustained growth. In fact, this growth in the South is considered to be largely at the expense of the North. These and other similar claims are based on five assumptions about the South: 1) An economic transformation has occurred in the region; 2) absentee ownership is minimal; 3) benefits of economic growth has been diffused to most segments of ...

Changes In Industrial And Occupational Structures Of Texas Counties, 1960-80, John K. Thomas, H. L. Goodwin Jr. Dec 1986

Changes In Industrial And Occupational Structures Of Texas Counties, 1960-80, John K. Thomas, H. L. Goodwin Jr.

Journal of Rural Social Sciences

This paper identifies and examines industrial and occupational changes that have accompanied population growth in Texas. According to the 1960 U.S. Census definitions for county size, Texas counties were grouped as metropolitan, urban-nonrnetropolitan, and rural-nonmetropolitan. Employment in 13 industrial and 9 occupational categories was used to measure sustenance differentiation. Industrial employment (SDI) diversified in both the sixties and seventies as nonrnetropolitan counties became more structurally homogeneous. Occupational employment (SDO) decreased in operative, labor, and farmer-farm worker jobs and increased in sales, crafts, clerical, and professional-technical-kindred jobs. Additionally, in 1980 SDI and SDO were markedly less correlated than in previous ...


The Cities Do Need Help, Chester Smolski Dec 1986

The Cities Do Need Help, Chester Smolski

Smolski Texts

"The lead editorial in the Providence Sunday Journal of December 7, 1986 is completely off the mark and deserves to be answered. The attitude expressed by the writer conveys the specious view that because our nation's cities are not being burned down or torn apart by race riots at the present time then things are not really all that bad in our urban centers."


Catching Glimpses Of Life On Westminster Mall, Chester Smolski Dec 1986

Catching Glimpses Of Life On Westminster Mall, Chester Smolski

Smolski Texts

"It is the best place to see what this country is about. It is the one place where people mix freely, whether rich or poor, black or white, young or old. And it is the one 'neighborhood' where residents from all other city neighborhoods meet on a common turf. This meeting place of residents, visitors, college students and workers is, of course, the downtown, or, in professional parlance, the central business district (CBD)."

Aboriginal Dreaming, Paul Faulstich

The earth is the very substance of Australian Aboriginal life. The importance of the sense of place in Aboriginal life cannot be overstressed. An intimate knowledge of the environment and geography was, and still is, imperative to survival within a hunting and gathering context.
