Most counties with disproportionately older populations are highly rural, farming counties in the country’s midsection. These places face significant challenges from small and declining populations, as well as low incomes and tax bases. Because of age-related income security payments and farm program payments, these counties receive more Federal funds, per capita, than other types of counties, and their future hinges in part on what happens to these age- and farm-related Federal programs Downloads
