I have to admit that I have no knowledge about the health issues in Robeson, Scotland and Hoke counties. I never really paid much attention since I’m a college student. When I go home for breaks, I usually get all my medical situations done before I come back to school.
In the reading Health Status and Health Care Access of Farm and Rural Populations, I find the comparison of farmers and non metro residents to be unreal. The health status of non metro and farmers are high due to diseases and work related illness, even though some farmers have college degrees and economic resources. I would at least think that farmers would be middle class but they fall into the category of the non metro population even when they have a degree. After reading the article I wonder if the counties that we are studying are the same or different. Do each county have different health status and health risk and are they paying more or less for health insurance.
