    Here's the list:

    1. Vermont
    2. Wyoming
    3. Maine
    4. Montana
    5. Mississippi
    6. South Dakota
    7. West Virginia
    8. Arkansas
    9. North Dakota
    10. Kentucky

    Personally, I was a bit surprised to learn that South Dakota's population is less urban than North Dakota's, but there we go!

    •  I mapped it out on DRA myself (0+ / 0-)

      The census and I use different criteria, but I think mine is more accurate.  I consider everything metro area under 75,000 people rural, because although many of those people live "in town," it's a very rural/small town feel.
