Farm Population Decreasing, 1954

From the July 1954 issue of Extension Farm-News

North Carolina’s farm population decreased from 1,520,000 to 1,481,000 between 1920 and 1950, while the total population increased from 2,573,000 to 4,062,000 during the same period. In 1920 the farm population was 59.1 per cent of the total state population, but by 1950 the proportion living on farms was reduced to 26.5 per cent.
