A large sector of the United States (U.S.) population. About 22percent of Americans, approximately 55 million people, areconsidered “rural” residents. Rural people have aunique set of health issues; they experience social, cultural, andeconomic disadvantages that can increase their risk for adversehealth consequences.
The first text of its kind, Critical Issues in RuralHealth, provides comprehensive sociological study of ruralhealth and health care trends in the United States, by examiningthe health and well-being of rural populations at all stages oflife. Editors Glasgow, Morton, and Johnson present integrativereviews of theory and research on rural health issues, with themost up-to-date statistics of empirical research. This informativeand groundbreaking text goes beyond the scope of previous studiesand emphasizes differences between rural and urban areas in healthand health care. Surprisingly little research has examined thedifferences in disability and morality rates by residence or degreeof rurality-this book does. In additon, contributing authors reporton the impact of age or life stage, race and ethnicity, socialclass, rural occupations, and community structure on various healthissues.
