35% (approx.) of rural American counties are experiencing significant population loss.

These counties are home to 6.2 million residents, which is

33% less than lived there in 1950.

The rural counties had an average population loss of

43% of their 20-to-24-year-olds in each decade from 1950 to 2010,

which means that they were home to far fewer women of child-bearing age.

In addition,

60 percent of these counties had more deaths than births.

This combination of young adult outmigration,

fewer births, and more deaths

have created a downward spiral of rural population loss

that will be difficult to reverse.
