Interwar Population Changes in Town and Country

  • Donald MacDougall


It is well known that Britain is a nation of town-dwellers. Four-fifths of the population live in administrative areas classified as urban, over one-half in ‘conurbations’ of over 100,000 inhabitants, and two-fifths in the seven ‘million-cities,’ or conurbations with over a million inhabitants. In this paper an attempt will be made to discover to what extent, and in what senses, we have become even more ‘urbanized’ since the end of the weir of 1914 – 18. No attempt is made to discuss the effects of the recent evacuation from large towns.
