URBANISATION, RURAL-URBAN MIGRATION AND RURAL DEPOPULATION

Rural-urban migration is both a socioeconomic phenomenon and a spatial process involving the movement of people from rural areas into cities, either permanently or semipermanently.

At present, it occurs mainly in developing countries as they undergo rapid urbanisation. Job opportunities created by industrialisation attract the surplus rural labor to the cities to seek higher salaries through employment in the industrial sector.

Rural-urban migration is widely considered an inevitable component of the development process, though it has a broad range of consequences and implications.
