Abstract: THE PHENOMENON Of out-migration in various sections of the country had increased to such an extent by 1960 that approximately one-half of the counties in the nation had recorded a loss in population during the previous ten-year period. The outlook for the 1960's was for a continued out-migration and resulting population loss in most of these areas. The purpose of this study is to analyze that population mobility and change relative to the economy of Arkansas State Economic Area 7 (hereinafter referred to as SEA 7), a twelve-county, predominantly agricultural region in northeastern Arkansas.
