Idaho’s rural economy is the focus of a webinar hosted by Labor Economist Ryan Whitesides on Tuesday, Feb. 13th. The webinar will take place from 11 a.m. to noon MT and will cover various topics such as demographics, population, and different industries that make up rural Idaho’s economy.
Whitesides emphasizes that rural Idaho’s economy can mean different things to different people, and it is not solely based on agriculture. He highlights other components such as forests, community gateways to national parks, and more. Those interested in attending the webinar can register for the event on Zoom, and information about future webinars and registration events can be found on the department’s calendar of events.
