2015 ACS 5-Year Estimates:
Differences in Rural and Urban Counties of PA
Rural counties in Pennsylvania are typically less racially diverse, have lower household median incomes, and lower educational attainment. Urban counties in Pennsylvania had more than double the proportion of non-whites than rural counties. Median household incomes were roughly $7,000 higher in urban counties. Rural counties had over 4 percent more residents with no High School diploma and over 5 percent less residents with a Bachelor's degree.
