  Types of rural communities - Education - Information - Educational Resources - Encyclopedia - Music
Academic communities are those in which the primary employers are boarding schools, colleges, universities, research laboratories, and corporate training facilities.
Academic institutions, in rural areas, are very much like a factory in that the economic success of the community depends upon the success of the institution.
Rural hospitals are increasingly unable to bring enough patients to support their operational budget, and retirement communities have developed, in some areas, as a means to solve this problem.

 Exurb - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The expression "exurb" (for "extra-urban") was coined in the 1950s, by Auguste Comte Spectorsky in his book "The Exurbanites", to describe the ring of prosperous rural communities beyond the suburbs that, due to availability via the new high-speed limited-access highways, were becoming dormitory communities for an urban area.
Although not on the list of exurbs below, some communities that lie outside the city proper of a metropolitan area could also be considered exurbs, whereas those inside are often known as suburbs.
Many suburban cities within Metropolitan Toronto enjoyed their greatest growth in the post World War II period and slowed down subsequently; extensive development is now (since the 1990s) occurring outside Metro Toronto (later City of Toronto).

 Crime and Violence in Rural Communities
The image of "crime-free" rural areas was born and grew as the centers of crime shifted to the cities located in the East, along the Great Lakes, and on the waterways of the Mississippi River system, which themselves were experiencing rapid population growth and population mobility as new waves of immigrants came to this country.
Rural areas may have higher crime rates, especially property-related incidents, if they (a) are located near interstates or large cities and other urban developments, (b) are suburbanizing, (c) are the location for second or seasonal homes or other tourist developments, and (d) are the location for retired householders moving out of the city.
Rural youth, along with their urban counterparts, are exposed to images on television and in the movies that desensitize them to the consequences of violence.

 Social Disorganization and Rural Communities -- Community Correlates of Rural Youth Violence   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-10)
The larger the network of acquaintances, the greater the community's capacity for informal surveillance (because residents are easily distinguished from outsiders), for supervision (because acquaintances are willing to intervene when children and juveniles behave unacceptably), and for shaping children's values and interests.
Rural sociologists concerned with the disruptive effects of rapid population growth provide some evidence that the processes of social disorganization apply in rural settings.
Because average crime rates are higher in communities with larger populations, this phenomenon would produce higher rates of delinquency in rural communities that are adjacent to metropolitan areas.

Rural mental health programs, social work policymakers, and women's health providers are increasingly viewing cultural and economic characteristics in rural areas as unique, and as having significant impact on service delivery.
This assertion of a rural epidemic is the only known written statement by a practitioner that attests to a high prevalence of sexual assault in rural communities.
She did not compare the same types of data from each state but rather presented characteristics and data from each state that provided illustration that rural rates of sexual assault were often not lower, and indeed even higher, than urban rates.

Historically, "communities of grain," which he defines as localized "forms of political order" that regulate the conditions of access to agricultural resources, have struggled to preserve their autonomy from the arbitrary power of aristocratic elites and the coercive demands of bureaucratic states.
Also useful is the distinction that he makes in the concluding chapter between different types of rural communities, depending on the extent to which local institutions controlled access to property.
In between these two extremes are "regulative communities," such as the classic three-field villages of medieval and early modern Europe that enforced communal rights over plots of land that were owned by individual households.

 This is Satya | Rural Communities of the Future   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-10)
My colleagues and I have discussed whether less rural land is going to be needed to feed the world, and whether the traditional services that rural communities supply for the farmer will fundamentally be altered.
This is in spite of the changes in rural health, where earlier in this century people in rural communities experienced better average health than city dwellers.
The result of these trends on rural communities, at least for some, will mean that different crops will be farmed, and that the farmer of the future will become healthier and more of a knowledge-engineer than a hard laborer and manager.

 Firearms
The importance of firearms in rural communities is highlighted by the fact that schools have been closed or their schedules altered during hunting season (Marcus, 1998; Sandham, 1997).
However, its application with rural youth may be limited to females; unhealthy attitudes towards guns and violence among rural males may need to be uncovered in an instrument better suited to their experiences and culture.
Rural youth should not be overlooked when developing these intervention and programs since this and other studies document they are not only victims to gun violence, but also the types of firearms they are exposed to and their firearm behaviors may differ substantially from their urban cohorts.

 Types of Rural Communities and Change
Through your studies you have gained a good understanding of the history of your community, what is happening in it now, and how the global, national and regional forces and trends of change are impacting it.
The reason that these communities are in trouble is that they were established to service the production of products and their transportation to markets in an era where technology and transportation have made many of these towns obsolete in terms of their organizing function.
A few will need to help communities deal with life-threatening decline; others may help the community through a change of direction and focus; and still others may lead though the changes that come with becoming a different size.

Small rural communities, particularly farming communities, are typically characterised by high levels of social cohesion, strong social ties between community members and low crime rates.
However, this paper reports on the findings of studies of crime in rural Australia, which revealed that within some highly cohesive rural communities, certain types of crime were allowed to persist and the reporting of such crimes to police was proscribed.
The extent to which these attitudes and behaviours prevail in rural communities was investigated through mail surveys and interviews with farmers in several regions in Australia.

For some older people, the idyllic vision of the close knit, stable community may be a reality, for others rural life may be harsh and affected by extremes of climate.
In some rural communities, older people continue to have important family roles; in others they may become a burden to stressed younger generations.

 August 18 - Grassley Hearing in Sioux City to Examine Tax Incentives for Rural Communities
The HIRE Act is a comprehensive package with a series of changes to benefit agricultural cooperatives, small businesses, affordable housing in rural communities, and other changes.
Grassley's provisions provide tax credits on expenditures on newly constructed rural investment buildings and starting or expanding a business, provided that the building or business is in a county that has lost at least 10 percent of its population over the last 20 years.
"Rural communities contribute a significant amount to the economy," Grassley said.

The group members go out into the community to market their products by hanging up flyers in the local market centers and visiting schools in the surrounding villages to solicit uniform orders.
This type of business provides the group with a steady stream of monthly income from the sale of the harvested honey, and it is a business that is very easy to expand once the initial set-up phase has been completed.
The benefit of the Microenterprise Development Program is not only the new access to capital that the income-generating activities provide to the group, but also the sense of hope and empowerment that the women gain from organizing and running their own business.
