Urbanization has influenced the rural people. Many of the urban traits have diffused to the rural people. The physical distances between the urban and rural areas having been narrowed the social influence of cities has extended to the villages. The question of city versus village should in fact be studied objectively. The type of city or village we study about and the period of history we refer to should be first ascertained before there can be any scientific study of the question because the problems created by them change with changing circumstances. The city of industrial age is quite different in character from the city of early or medieval age. The industrial revolution has created complex problems for the city. The different parts of urban culture are not fitted well together. The cities have grown and are changing with such rapidity that men and women are still far from being adjusted to the new industrial urban life. Further, the full effects of city life cannot be measured by rural-urban differences in contemporary society, because both sides of the comparison reflect city influence. Generally, what we attribute to the city may not be attributed to the city at all. The social effects attributed to the city may in reality be the function of other factors.

In spite of the evils and difficulties of city life people continue to move to and live in cities. The number of cities instead of decreasing is increasing.

That point, however, is still far from being reached. The world is still overwhelmingly rural and so it will continue to move towards urbanization. When will the saturation point be reached beyond which urbanization will come to a halt is hard to say It is, however, within the bounds of possibility theorem Stolper-Samuelson the entire 2014 Construction April Update – will eventually reach the degree of urbanization now attained by only a few advanced industrial nations.
