Abstract

Excerpt from the report Summary: As demands for governmental services increase in rural areas, alternative ways of providing the services and the funds to pay for them need to be studied. Cooperation among local units of government in rural areas has been advanced as a desirable alternative, but little information was available about how cooperative endeavors worked out in practice. The present study was designed to explore local cooperation in the rural, nonmetropolitan portions of five States—Alabama, Indiana, Nebraska, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin. These States were selected as representative of those with a variety of systems of local government.
