The stark inequality between urban and rural areas was the direct result of the state crafted institutional division. However, social inequality between the rich elite and the working poor in megacities today emulates the old urban-rural gap.

There are two key reasons for : Jake Lin, New Zealand. Journals & Books; Help Next, the study investigates the empirical relationship between land inequality, level of urbanization and income inequality using cross-country datasets.

The estimation results support the theoretical model and indicate that the level of land inequality has a significant impact on determining the level of Cited by:   National income distribution is thus a function of f 1, f 2, and x.A change in national inequality is the result of changes in urban income distribution f 1, rural income distribution f 2, and/or a shift of population from rural to urban, measured by a change in x.

This paper focuses on the case where inequality is given by Theil's second measure, that is, the GE(0) measure from the Cited by:   Robert Muggah is releasing a new book, Terra Incognita, with his co-author Ian Goldin. The book explores mega-trends, including inequality and violence, and will be released by Penguin/Random House later this year.

This paper provides a quantitative analysis of how the changing dual economic structure and urbanization affect inequality in Asia. Focusing on data for four countries—the Peoples’ Republic of China, India, Indonesia, and the Philippines—the paper asks three by: In this regard, Sub-Saharan Africa remains largely understudied.

This paper employed an unbalanced panel dataset for 48 Sub-Saharan African countries over the period – to examine whether urbanization is correlated with income inequality. We find evidence of a positive association between urbanization and income inequality in the region.

The level of world urbanization has crossed the 50% mark, and nearly all future population growth is projected to occur in cities. Cities are disproportionately wealthy, but are associated with poverty, too. Addressing the dual challenges of urbanization and poverty is key to achieving sustainable development.

This paper performs cross-sectional regressions, based on Kuznets, as a starting. Reversing Urban Inequality in Johannesburg investigates the ways that neoliberal urban policy produces sociospatial inequality in South Africa’s largest esburg is a site of particular interest because of its historic legacy of apartheid and the resultant inequalities, and its contemporary post-apartheid commitment to redressing and ameliorating these inequalities.

Rural-urban inequality usually explains the majority of a country’s inequality in the early stages of the development process.

Kanbur and Zhang () find for instance that over 70% of overall inequality in China was explained by the rural-urban component over the period Kuznets’.

lives in urban settlements (Poston and Bouvierpp –), with the level of urbanisation being the urban share, and the rate of urbanisation being the annual growth rate of this urban share (United n ations Population Division ). When they bother to define it at all, many other urban researchers also define urbanisation in this way.

Since the start of the open and reform policy in the late s, the number of urban inhabitants in China has ballooned from million (or 18% of the total population) in to million (or 55% of the total population) in [].

Between andurban areas are projected to absorb the entire world’s population growth, and urbanization will concentrate in Asia and Africa (UNDESA, ).

to, urban areas in developing countries have led to the formation of large and rapidly growing informal urban settlements often referred to as “slums”. More than 1 billion people, or about 14 percent of the total global population, were estimated to live in slums in (UN–HABITAT ).

Urbanization occurred rapidly in the second half of the nineteenth century in the United States for a number of reasons. The new technologies of the time led to a massive leap in industrialization, requiring large numbers of workers. New electric lights and powerful machinery allowed factories to run twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week.

urban may vary from country to country, which cautions us against a strict comparison of urbanization cross-nationally. The fundamental difference between urban and rural is that urban populations live in larger, denser, and more heterogeneous cities as opposed to.

Urbanization is the study of the social, political, and economic relationships in cities, and someone specializing in urban sociology studies those relationships.
