The classification system reduces the wide range of economic and social diversity existing in U.S. nonmetro counties into a few important themes relevant to rural policymaking.
The typology is based on the assumption that knowledge and understanding of different types of rural economies and their distinctive economic and socio-demographic profiles can aid rural policymaking.
The county typology codes use the same definitions of "metropolitan" and "non-metropolitan" counties as the U.S. Bureau of the Census, and therefore face similar limitations as these classification schemes.
