Abstract
Description
This report was undertaken to reexamine the South Carolina Department of Commerce’s definition of a rural county and propose changes to the definition, if necessary. Upon examination, this study found that while the change to the Metropolitan Statistical Area definition of rural status, adopted in early 2007, improved the rural vs. urban classifications of South Carolina’s counties when compared to the actual conditions on the ground, the method still has several rankings that belie the actual conditions in several South Carolina counties.
