CITY –SIZE DISTRIBUTION IN PAKISTAN

S. AKHTAR, M. R. DHANANI

Abstract


In every country there are cities of different sizes. In general large cities are small in number and small cities are large in number. Researchers have investigated if there is any pattern in city-size distribution. This has resulted in finding three patterns. They are expressed by three laws or rules, namely Law of Primate city, Rank-size rule and Rank-size classes (City-size pyramid). This paper is concerned with city-size distribution of Pakistan. An attempt has been made to find out, whether the city-size distribution of Pakistan conforms with any of the three patterns stated above. If not, is there any other pattern? The study has been made in historical perspective so that the changing pattern may also be brought out.
