The article discusses possible approaches to delimiting urban and rural populations for the purpose of analysing the spatial differentiation of the population. It presents the commuting approach to classifications for delimiting urban, suburban, and rural populations. Unlike other commonly used approaches, this one makes it possible to distinguish between suburban and further outlying regions, where the greater or lesser degree of connectedness with an urban centre has in recent decades revealed differing population dynamics.
