In many rural communities, the health care services sector is the largest employer, and rapid growth in this sector is occurring and likely will continue, especially as the Baby-Boom generation retires. Provision of adequate health care services may be a key factor attracting retirees and other migrants to rural areas, contributing to rural growth and prosperity. Despite recent growth and potential for continued growth in this sector, many rural communities suffer from poor access to health care services, especially because of the limited supply of health care professionals. The authority to collect this information is under 7 U.S.C. 2204(a), 7 U.S.C. 2204(b) and 7 U.S.C. 2661.

The study will be based on a sample of 150 communities in three major regions of the country. The study will also collect information on how rural small towns attract and retain primary health care providers, considering the broad range of community assets and amenities that may attract providers. If the proposed information collection is not conducted, research and knowledge on the roles rural communities play in recruiting and retaining health care providers will remain limited.
