Iowa Communities Struggling to Survive
Iowa's smallest towns are shrinking- the total population living in towns of one-thousand people or less decreased by seven percent in the last decade. We conclude our summer series on Iowa towns and cities with a look at communities struggling to survive. Charity talks with Jeff Schott of the University of Iowa's Institute of Public Affairs. Schott reveals the latest census numbers focusing on parts of the state experiencing population loss. Also joining the conversation- Sac County Economic Development Director Shirley Phillips, Decorah author Robert Wolf and Cedar Rapids entrepreneur and author Michael Richards.
