Description: During most of the twentieth century, rural America experienced widespread and protracted outmigration. The magnitude of this loss varied from decade to decade, but the pattern was quite consistent: rural areas grew only when an excess of births over deaths offset the number of people who moved away from these communities. Many rural communities suffered population decline because outmigration was so substantial and persistent.
