The fine folks at the Housing Assistance Council released a report called “Taking Stock” a few months ago.  Taking Stock, uses data from the 2010 Census and American Community Survey (ACS) to describe the social, economic, and housing characteristics of rural Americans, and includes great maps of the data.
