    The urban population has considerably increased in Morocco since 1950 due to the rural exodus. The urban system is relatively unbalanced and is dominated by the agglomeration of Casablanca. The level of primacy has decreased since the 1970s to the benefit of a few large agglomerations. The evolution of the urban structure may mainly be accounted for by the geographical distribution of activities and the evolution of productive specializations that go hand in hand with development and that are featured by the bell-shaped curve of urban and regional inequalities.
