On Tuesday, February 13th, Labor Economist Ryan Whitesides will be hosting a webinar to explore the various components of Idaho’s rural economy. The webinar will take place from 11 am to noon MT and cover topics such as demographics, population, and the different industries that make up rural Idaho’s economy, including public and private sectors, farms, ranches, and national monuments.
Whitesides emphasizes that rural Idaho’s economy can mean different things to different people and it is not solely based on agriculture. He highlights the importance of other components such as forests and community gateways to national parks. 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.
