In 2010, rural America was home to approximately 20 percent of the U.S. popu­lation, yet about 95 percent of U.S territory is still officially designated as rural. Rural America is generally poorer than its urban neighbors, plays an important role in national issues like agriculture and energy, is frequently ignored politically and is aging—even more quickly than the rest of the country.
