Examines 40 places located in the rural South. The analysis demonstrates that both racial composition and other community characteristics such as spatial location, industrial structure, and education level of the races have significant effects on the differential occupational opportunities of whites and blacks. The findings for rural locales diverge sharply from conventional theoretical expectations and from findings observed for metropolitan centers. These unique results are discussed and interpreted in light of sociological theory.-from AuthorsDept Sociology, Univ of Nebraska, Lincoln, NB 68588, U.S.A.
