Factors in Underemployment in Rural Pennsylvania

By Carrie Hall

Unemployment is a problem for rural Pennsylvania, but underemployment is equally important. Using survey data taken by the Center for Rural Pennsylvania, econometric tests were performed to identify factors highly associated with self-reported underemployment. Being female and/or having less than a high school diploma are highly associated with self-reported underemployment.
