Developed by USDA’s Economic Research Service, The Atlas of Rural and Small-Town America provides county-level mapping of over 60 statistical indicators depicting conditions and trends across different types of nonmetro regions. It was launched Feb 18 and includes data from the American Community Survey that can be downloaded. The project’s objective is to better understand the economic, demographic, environmental, and social forces affecting rural regions and communities.
