Arkansas communities have changed greatly over the past decade.  Many rural areas in the state continue to recover from the Great Recession while others grow and thrive.

To enrich communities, local leaders must be aware of factors of change in the state.

  • Population,
  • Economy,
  • Social and Economic Stress,
  • Health,
  • Education, and
  • Local Government.

The Rural Profile also compares trends in rural and urban counties and among regions of the state.
