In Fact the fastest declining states are mainly in the NE.

Leading the way are WV, PA, MA, Conn, and NY.

I'm not trying to "gang up" on you or troll or anything, but I have no idea where you come off calling PA "rural". Philly, Allentown, Pittsburgh, etc. are like the epitome of "urban" to me.

I bet Japan has a larger rural population than Pennsylvania, but percentage-wise Japan is one of the most urban countries in the world, but its population is so large that you could use the total to skew the numbers.
