Abstract

Re-examination of the concept of primate cities and the different methods of calculating primacy. The high degree of primacy of 12 Latin American countries is confirmed here. However, the widely held belief that primacy is a stage of the urban-size distribution in less developed countries is not validated by these findings. - (DWG)
