Abstract
Geographers use the term urbanization more commonly to refer the process of transformation. The process of transform includes behavioural, structural and demographic aspects. This study includes only demographic aspect of process of urbanization. Most part of Jalgaon district comprises the basin of river Tapi and its tributaries. Agriculture is the main economic activity which is unfavourable for faster urbanization. The district is not much developed in respect of industrial activities. rnThe study of spatial and temporal change in distribution of urban population according to hierarchy of urban centres in the district suggests increase in number of urban centres during the last decade. The centres placed of first hierarchical order of urbanization have suggested no change in their number while decline is noticed in percentage of population occupied by these centres. The increase is noticed in both the aspects in towns located on second and third hierarchical orders. Total population and its proportion to total urban population has decline in towns placed on fourth and fifth order urban centres.
