  • Community Sociodemographics and Rural Hospital Survival Analysis
    Policy Brief
    Date: 01/2023
    This study examines which community sociodemographic characteristics are associated with increased risk of rural hospital closure between 2010-2019. Results show that rural hospitals at risk of financial distress are more likely to experience closure if their communities have higher unemployment and higher uninsurance for those under 65.
