Young Adults in Rural Communities, A Longer Road

"The New, Longer Road to Adulthood: Schooling, Work, and Idleness among Rural Youth", a new report by the Carsey Institute, focuses on the education and work experiences of rural youth during the emerging adult years (age 20 to 24) as they make the transition from adolescence to adulthood. It documents how rural emerging adults combine work and school and experience idleness, closely examines their educational attainment, and compares their experiences with those in central city and suburban areas. They draw from current research and conduct analysis on nationally representative data sets that contain information on the transition to adulthood. (Hat tip to Connect for Kids)
