Rural Development Boom in Rural America Is On a Roll

The United States has seen an unprecedented rural growth explosion in the past few years.

The nation is now home to more than 7.5 million rural households, an increase of 1.4 million households from 2016.

This surge in rural growth is driven by a number of factors, such as an expanding rural workforce, an expanding market for agricultural commodities, and the expansion of rural transportation infrastructure.

In a nutshell, rural growth has made the United States a more urban place and is helping the U.S. compete globally in the 21st century.
