Definitions of “Rural” in Texas Statutes and the Texas Administrative Code as of July 2016

Description: This publication compiles definitions of "rural" found in Texas statutes and state agency rules. The definitions were identified by searching the text of the Texas statutes and the Texas Administrative Code for each instance of the term "rural" that corresponds with a geographic area. The publication consists of a table listing each definition and, for some definitions, includes a map of the defined area. Each entry in the table contains a description of a "rural area," "rural community," "rural county," "rural hospital," or similar term, defined by population, location with regard to a census-delineated area, or other factors. A map is included if all elements of the definition can be mapped without ambiguity and if supporting data are accessible. The information provided is current as of April 30, 2018. It should be noted that while Texas statutes are updated following each legislative session, the Texas Administrative Code is updated on an ongoing basis. Additionally, we did not seek to determine whether the program to which a definition applies is currently active.
