This study, using data from the Census of India for 2001 and 2011, decomposes urbanisation ratio into its mathematical components to explain the causes of changes in this ratio over time. Using statistical techniques, we adjust current urbanisation levels of major states in India according to the progression of towns to larger sizes and estimate Class Progression Indices to arrive at a meaningful discussion on the spread of urbanisation.
