Rural America is far more diverse and complex than the stereotypes suggest, as shown by two projects, they write. The first is the American Communities Project's "A New Portrait of Rural America", which focuses on the geographic, demographic and socioeconomic diversity of rural America. The second is the foundation's Life in Rural America polls, with data on the complex economic and health issues in rural America. The polls and accompanying report were produced in partnership with Harvard University's T.H. Chan School of Public Health and NPR.
