Abstract

The literature on urban economics usually point up the developing countries as those ones with urban structure extremely concentrated and unequal, and the developed countries as those countries with a better distribution of cities. This paper compares the national and state urban structures of two countries: the USA, a developed country, and Brazil, a developing country. In the Brazilian case, the regional urban structures are also analyzed.
