      To conclude, education plays a critical role in rural development, as it is a key factor in developing the people of the rural area, the community, and the land itself. The government's term for a rural area is non-metropolitan. Furthermore, the common, historically entrenched idyllic images of rural areas exemplify a socially constructed understanding (Short, ; U.S. Department of Agriculture, ). Thus, perceptions of rural are multiple and shifting.

      A key asset of rural areas is the strength of the community to support healthy behaviors across many avenues. From institutional assets like schools and community centers to the economic assets of local business, to the very people who make up the community and the unique traditions and skills they bring to the table — these are what add to. "Rural areas are aging at a faster rate than the general population," notes the Rural Health Information Hub, adding that "older adults also disproportionately live in rural areas." In , one-quarter of all Americans age 65 or older lived in small towns and rural communities and that number is growing.

    Another indicator of the deterioration of life in many areas is the closure of rural hospitals; in the words of a U.S. Government Accountability Office report last year, “From to , 64 rural hospitals closed, more than twice as many as during the previous five-year period.”.   The rural-urban divide is a challenge in Nigeria as it is in countries across the world. According to the World Bank, in 85% of Nigerians lived in rural areas. Today less than 50% do.
