Demographic Change along the Urban-Rural Gradient

Quetelet Seminar, 7-8 November 2019, Louvain-la-Neuve, Belgium

 

Urban and rural living is decidedly distinct, with for example different primary economic activities, varying access to services including healthcare and education, and varying household arrangements. Demographic behaviour along the rural-urban gradient vary by the stage of the demographic and urban transitions reached. How different are rural and urban populations over the demographic transition? What is the role of internal migration in the diffusion of behaviour? Beyond the urban-rural dichotomy, differences in demographic behaviour over a range of urbanicity needs to be addressed. 


Large topics:

Gradient of urbanicity in demographic research

Diffusion of behaviours across rural & urban sectors

Migration and circulation within countries

Urbanisation, economic inequalities and ecology
