According to the Pew Research Center, the United States is undergoing some major changes. Not only is the country growing in numbers, it is also becoming more diverse, both ethnically and racially. In addition, we are also becoming older. And a new analysis by the Center says these trends are playing out differently across community types … urban, suburban, and rural. On this week’s Perspective program a look at not only the trends, but also what they may portend for our country.
