Abstract or Summary
  • In this report we explore alternative ways of defining “rural” by mapping and comparing four different classification systems: three created for nationwide use, and one created specifically for Oregon. Several of the most frequently noted differences between the ‘two Oregons’ are the lower educational attainment, lower employment rate, lower average incomes, and higher poverty rates of rural parts of the state. To assess how different classifications affect each of these conclusions, we look at how urban and rural compare under each classification system in terms of the percent of the population with at least a four-year college degree; the percent living in poverty, as determined by the Census Bureau; the percent living with incomes below 185% of the poverty line and the median household income. To gauge how much of Oregon is rural under different systems, we compare the percent of the land and population that is ‘urban’ under each definition.
