The quality of and access to health care has been the focus of rural health research; however, health disparities can involve a complex interaction of factors including race/ethnicity, age, sex, educational level, income level, insurance status and place of residence. (Burneo et al., 2009; Hartley, 2004; Johnson et al., 2008; Marmot, 2005; Scott and Wilson, 2011; Smedley et al., 2001; Szaflarski, 2014) Healthy People 2020 lists geographic region (rural/urban residence) as an important social determinant of health (Healthy People 2020, 2015) Rural/urban residence may affect health through individual (use of self-care, no routine source of care, lifestyle and behavior) or environmental (poverty, income inequality, access to care, health care shortages) factors.
