E Gayathri and Dr. K Sita Devi
Urbanization is a form of social transformation from traditional rural societies to modern urban communities. It has been seen as an integral part of economic growth, as a defining phenomenon of the 21st century, it puts the developing world in a position of economic and demographic transformation with a complex and nuance development process. A shift away from agriculture appears to have occurred in most parts of India over the last decade (Sawant and Achuthan, 1995). The specific objectives set forth for the study are, to compare the social and economic indicators of the sample households in three different gradients of the study, viz., rural, peri-urban and urban areas. The tools of analysis used in the study were descriptive analysis and composite standard of living. The results revealed that the households in the urban and peri-urban gradients had a better standard of living than the rural gradient. Hence, the government should generate productive employment opportunities in rural areas by initiating the development-oriented programmes and industrial progress based on the resource base of the state.
