Abstract

The study of urbanization processes is a topical issue as it represents a global trend, and the concentration of economic, innovative, scientific, public activity is able to increase significantly the economic efficiency. At the same time, the urbanization process development enhances the necessity to determine the optimal urbanization level to support the balanced development of the country. This investigation is aimed at estimating the urbanization level in Kazakhstan regions, revealing the difference among the regions, and reasons for the difference for more balanced policy in the field of urbanization. The investigation assumes the application of the index method for urbanization level estimation. By inclusion of the cities’ number and its sizes to the index, we managed to rank Kazakhstan cities by the following urbanization levels: very high; high; middle; low, and very low. These results can be used at elaborating the governmental policy on the urbanization process management in Kazakhstan.
