Urbanization versus GDP per Capita

If the idea was to suggest, for example, that China is trying to achieve the same urbanization rate as Japan but at a much lower level of income, it matters if the data point for Japan is in the right place. It looked wrong because contrary to what the graph shows, other sources report that Japan is more urbanized than Germany. It is also hard to tell what unit the published graph used to measure income. The article attributes the graph to the OECD but does not mention the underlying data source. The Urban Revolution - Finance & Development, September 2007. Slum population in urban Africa. A Shocking Satellite Tour Of The World's Biggest Slums. Visualizing 200 Years of Urban Sprawl in Paris, São Paulo, and L.A. - Richard Florida. New animations show centuries of expansion in three global cities. Two centuries ago, Paris, a city with a population of half a million, barely extended beyond its medieval footprint.

São Paulo was still largely a small trading outpost for gold and exploration expeditions. And Los Angeles was just a pueblo of a few dozen buildings. Over the next 200 years, and accelerating rapidly during the second half of the twentieth century, this would all change. Today, the Paris metropolitan area sprawls out over more than 6,600 square miles, metropolitan São Paulo over more than 3,000 square miles, and metro L.A. over nearly 4,900 square miles.

A set of three new map animations from my colleagues at NYU's Stern Urbanization Project tracks the history behind these decades of geographic expansion.

Tracing America's Urban-to-Urban Migration Through the Recession - Nate Berg

The majority of people now live in urban areas, and that’s not expected to change. But many countries have had urban majorities for decades. The United States, for example, has an urban population near 80 percent. Global Rural-Urban Mapping Project (GRUMP), v1. Introduction Urbanization poses both challenges and opportunities for sustainable development and environmental management. Improved data on patterns of human settlement and trends in population can help researchers and policy makers better understand differences between urban and rural areas in terms of their impacts on the environment and vulnerability to environmental variability and change. The Global Rural-Urban Mapping Project, Version 1 (GRUMPv1) data collection is a valuable resource both for researchers studying human-environment interactions and for applied users working to address critical environmental and societal issues.

The urbanisation of Africa: Growth areas. Urbanization: A Majority in Cities: Population & Development. The world is undergoing the largest wave of urban growth in history. In 2008, for the first time in history, more than half of the world’s population will be living in towns and cities. By 2030 this number will swell to almost 5 billion, with urban growth concentrated in Africa and Asia. While mega-cities have captured much public attention, most of the new growth will occur in smaller towns and cities, which have fewer resources to respond to the magnitude of the change. In principle, cities offer a more favourable setting for the resolution of social and environmental problems than rural areas. Cities generate jobs and income. Cities also present opportunities for social mobilization and women’s empowerment.
