Seventy percent of rural residents say that people who live in the suburbs or urban areas don’t understand the kinds of problems they face. A Pew Research study found that 65 percent of those who live in urban areas feel equally misunderstood. Just 52 percent of suburban dwellers hold that view.

Sixty-three percent of rural residents have lived in their communities for 11 years or longer.

Just 25 percent would move if given the chance.

The numbers are more even for urban residents. Just 45 percent have been in their community for 11 years or more, and 37 percent would move if given the chance.

Overall, about one out of five adults have always lived near the community where they grew up.
