Poor economy results in rural Nebraskans feeling less positive about rural towns

The University of Nebraska's 2009 Rural Poll reveals that rural Nebraskans feel less positive about living in rural towns. In 2008, 30 percent of people polled said their community improved over the past year. The 2009 poll revealed that only 23 percent felt their community has improved. The Rural Poll has not revealed a number so low since 2003, a record low.

The poll was taken in March and April when projections of the economy were at an extreme low. Hopefully, next year will result in both a better economy and a better outlook. View the article here.
