Predicting the movement of people into rural wildlands previously has been limited to studies of population and housing growth in counties or other large geographical areas. In these studies, the areas of high fire danger that contain dispersed rural housing cannot be distinguished from the areas less vulnerable to wildfire (small towns and adjacent urban areas) because the data and the analysis procedures associated with the l 980 census does did not give sufficient information about rural and wildland areas. Analysis studying rural demographics supplement census data with information from such sources as local tax assessors' records or building permit files.
