It used to be that most Americans lived on the farm, or otherwise made their
living from the land, the forests, or the sea. With global trade and an
economy increasingly based on providing services to one another, fewer
people farm, fish or harvest timber now than at any time in American history.

Smithville neighborhood stands apart from most American neighborhood due
to the proportion of its residents still working in these fields. With 8.3%

of such workers than 98.4% of U.S. neighborhoods.
