Title: The Relation Between Urban and Rural Populations: Empirics and Implications
Authors: Phillips, John
Issue Date: 1974-06
Abstract: Policies aimed at increasing farm efficiency through amalgamation and those directed at decentralization of population require a clear understanding of the relationship, both functionally and empirically, between rural populations and the towns which they surround. In this article we show that rural towns have evolved as service centres for the surrounding population and that there is a definite numerical relationship between the population in the rural sector and that in the related urban service centres. Policy implications of these findings are then deduced.
