Writers and exponents of the "decentralization-of-industry" theory seem to think that it is the hope of rural people. It is not the purpose or intention of this study to prove that industrial development is desirable or objectionable, but to find out its effects on rural welfare as revealed by data collected in four survey areas. Precaution was taken to be fair in all statements and not to be biased or let preconceived ideas about the problem influence the conclusions drawn.
