Rural Counties Shed a Quarter Million Jobs in March

A recent Daily Yonder analysis of economic data from the US Bureau of Labor Statistics finds that across the country from February to March 2020, rural counties lost a quarter of a million jobs. Job losses in metropolitan (urban) counties were far larger at 2.6 million jobs during this same time period. Authors say these statistics suggest that rural counties might be losing jobs slower than urban counties, at least as of March 2020. #covid-19 #rural
