(Monique Constance-Huggins, Journal of Family and Economic Issues. Rural areas have been hit hard by economic restructuring. Traditionally male jobs with good pay and benefits (such as in manufacturing) have declined dramatically, only to be replaced with low-paying service-oriented jobs-jobs that do not offer benefits or wages sufficient to raise a family.

Concurrently, rural areas have experienced changes in family life, namely an increase in womens. Agricultural households, both in the European Union and world-wide, have experienced important changes during the last three decades. This book covers recent advances both in family economics and in modelling the relationship between the farm-household and the farm-firm.

Rural Families and the Environment. Families are the fundamental building blocks of social and economic development (Firebaugh ). Families, as rural households, are key to understanding environmental changes in developing countries, as they are the immediate users and managers of rural ecosystems at the subsistence level.

Agricultural policy reform is likely to move spending further in this direction. In the rural areas of developed economies farms are often no longer the mainstay of the economy, particularly in OECD countries.

Many of the problems of farm families can only be addressed by creating economic opportunities outside agriculture. Their book, Families in Troubled Times: Adapting to Change in Rural America documented the impact of crises in agriculture on youth development and family relations.

Perhaps the most telling finding from their study is that economic stress causes problems for children because it disrupts parenting.

Rural economics is the study of rural economies, including. farm and non-farm industry; economic growth, development, and change size and spatial distribution of production and household units and interregional trade; land use; housing and non-housing as to supply and demand; migration and ()population; finance; government policies as to development, investment, regulation, and transportation.

Farming is the single largest source of income and jobs for rural families living in poverty around the world. And smallholder farmers supply the majority of the developing worlds food.
