Solution

  • The area where more people are engaged in primary activities is called a rural area, and the people living in rural areas are called rural populations.
  • The area where more people are engaged in secondary and tertiary activities is called urban areas, and people living in urban areas are called urban populations.
  • There is a difference in the density of the population, age structure, sex ratio, occupation structure, standard of living, lifestyle of people, sources of income, literacy rate, etc.
  • There is a major difference in the level of economic development in rural and urban areas.
  • There is more use of modern technology in urban areas compared to rural areas. Therefore, development in all fields is very fast.
  • Due to more development of industries and infrastructure in urban areas, there is an increase in transportation and trade as compared to rural areas.
  • The criteria to differentiate rural and urban populations vary from one country to another.
