What are the causes of urbanization?

Answer

Some of the most common causes of urbanisation include a better standard of living that could be found in urban areas, a higher rate of pay in urban areas, and more access to health care in those areas. Other causes of urbanization include the fact that many jobs tend to be concentrated around urban areas rather than in rural areas. Urbanization is also caused by the lack of open land in rural areas for farming and for building homes. Urbanization seems to be the trend across the world at this time.
