To an extent this depends where you mean. The setting takes place in the early 1980s in rural Kentucky finally ending up in Tucson Arizona. In Kentucky the socio-economic realities were rural and poor. Education was not a sought after quality. As a young girl Taylor was expected to get pregnant and perhaps married at a young age. Rural poverty was the reality of most people.
