#LocalGovMatters 2.0 Episode 5: The Rural Challenge: Depopulation and Its Economic Consequences
In the latest Forward Analytics report, “The Rural Challenge: Depopulation and Its Economic Consequences,” it was reported that from 2010-2018, two thirds of rural counties in Wisconsin lost population.
That percentage was up from 44% during 2000-10, and in rural counties across the nation, a similar pattern has emerged.
Join us for this #LocalGovMatters 2.0 podcast, where we sit down with Forward Analytics Director Dale Knapp to dive deeper into the issues both in Wisconsin and nationwide that are causing this decline.
