Abstract

Continuing gains in the rural-nonfarm population appear to be closely associated with the increasing concentration of population in urban places and particularly in metropolitan districts. These gains reflect both cityward migration which stops outside the legal boundaries of urban places and the centrifugal movement from cities to adjacent rural territory. Examination of rural-nonfarm concentration and growth for the United States by counties suggests that, sociologically, rural-nonfarm increase is to a considerable degree a phase of urban growth and redistribution.
