Abstract

The persistence and widening of the rural-urban earning gap represents a continuing empirical puzzle. Using county-level data, we estimate a fixed-effects empirical model of earnings response that differentiates the impacts of schooling, unemployment shocks and macroeconomic forces on per capita earnings of rural and urban communities across the U.S.
