Слайд 30

Слайд 31

Слайд 37

A leading city that is disproportionately larger than the other cities in the country. London, UK Mexico City, Mexico Paris, France Primate City

Слайд 38

Rank-Size Rule Population of city is inversely proportional to its rank in the urban hierarchy. For example: Largest city = Population 12 million 2nd largest = Population 6 million 3rd largest = Population 4 million 4th largest = Population 3 million Does not work in regions with primate cities
