Investigates alternative explanations of the sources of rural-urban differences in the activities of political elites. Three conceptualizations of the rural-urban variable are examined as they might influence measures of legislative position, power, and decision making. In addition, the alternative hypothesis that any rural-urban differences in these dependent variables are the spurious result of related factors is examined. These alternative explanations are tested empirically in multivariate models using data collected on North Carolina state legislators.-Author
