Moving to the country

March 10, 2008
More of us Hoosiers are moving to unincorporated areas and other places beyond city and town limits.

In fact, the pace of growth for unincorporated areas was significantly faster between 2000 and 2006 than for cities and towns, the Indiana Business Research Center found in a recent study.

Why? The center, which is an arm of Indiana Universityâ??s business school, isnâ??t certain. But it pointed out that people tend to leave town as their incomes rise.

Is this a good thing, considering the higher costs to the environment and local governments?
