    ste texto busca oferecer uma crítica aos critérios oficiais de classificação da população segundo a situação de domicílio – rural ou urbano. Com argumentos fundados na evolução normativa desta classificação e um exercício quantitativo de sentido ilustrativo, o texto intenta chamar a atenção para a presença ainda marcante da ruralidade como traço característico da estrutura socioespacial de ocupação do território brasileiro. This text seeks to offer a critique of the official criteria for the classification of the population according to their place of residence – rural or urban. With arguments based on the normative evolution of this classification and a quantitative exercise in an illustrative way, the text tries to draw attention to the still strong presence of rurality as a characteristic feature of socio-occupational structure of the Brazilian territory.
