USDA would like to know whether broadband development has an effect on rural prosperity, as measured by changes in property values and quality of life indicators in rural communities. This DSPG project has two parts that will inform the overall project in the Social and Decision Analytics Division.

The second is identifying what factors other than broadband predict property values.
