Yet the rural heart of North Carolina is “in cardiac arrest” according to a Dec. 2019 article from the Charlotte Observer.
 
As of 2016, forty-nine of the state’s 100 counties saw population decline since the 2010 census. Only two of the 49 counties had a population greater than 100,000 (Robeson & Craven County). Northampton County saw the biggest decline in the state, losing 9.5% of it’s population, or just over 2,000 people in six years.
