REDISCOVERING RURAL

THE CENTER FOR RURAL PROSPERITY AND INNOVATION

WHAT IS RURAL?

From small towns to crossroads communities, rural Georgia is not just the state’s far-flung, pleasant places, but also the people who call them home. In fact, 26% of Georgians live outside the state’s urban centers, and 120 of the state’s 159 counties are considered rural. Georgia’s most profitable industry, agriculture, is also headquartered in rural Georgia, and generates $74 billion dollars a year and one in every seven Georgia jobs. From military bases to movie sets, there’s a whole lot more to rural Georgia than any clear-cut definition can describe or calculation can quantify.
