Urbanization by country

This is a list of countries by urbanization.

The percentage of urbanized population by country (2018 data).

MethodologyEdit

There are two measures of the degree of urbanization of a population. The first, urban population, describes the percentage of the total population living in urban areas, as defined by the country.

The second measure, rate of urbanization, describes the projected average rate of change of the size of the urban population over the given period of time.

193 United Nations member states plus the Vatican are given a number, other entries are italicized and unnumbered.[original research?]
