Nearly three out of five Nebraska counties are most rural. Most rural refers to counties having no towns with greater than 2,500 residents.
Figure 1 shows that in 1970, 52 counties were most rural. The total number has not changed since then. However, there has been one switch-Nuckolls County has replaced ButlerCounty. The population of David City (Butler County) increased from 2,380 in 1970 t02,552 in 1990. The population of Superior (Nuckolls County) declined from 2,779 in 1970 to 2,397 in 1990.
