CAIADO, Aurílio Sérgio Costa and SANTOS, Sarah Maria Monteiro dos. Fim da dicotomia rural-urbano? Um olhar sobre os processos socioespaciais. São Paulo Perspec. [online]. 2003, vol.17, n.3-4, pp.115-124. ISSN 1806-9452. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0102-88392003000300012.
This article discusses some of the socio-spatial processes underway in the cities of the State of São Paulo, such as conurbation, metropolitanization and the expansion of urban occupation in areas officially defined as rural, to demonstrate that the old rural-urban dichotomy is no longer valid and that the official IGBE definition no longer explains the diversity of usages, and is in need of being re-elaborated.
