The urban system of any region is characterised by the dominance of onecity which is called 'primate city'.Primacy is present when the largest city istwice the population of the one that is second in the rank.A country's leading city is always disproportionately large and exceptionallyexpressive of national capacity and feeling. The primate city is commonly atleast twice as large as the next largest city and more than twice assignificant. - Mark Jefferson, 1939Primacy exists when asystem of small towns and cities is dominated by onelarge city(Jefferson, M. 1939). G. K. Zipf (1949) gave a mathematicalexplanation to the law of primate city. It is called rank-size rule. According tothis if all towns in a region are arranged in descending order by population,the size of the town is 1/r the size of the largest town, according to the series1, 1/2,1/ 3, 1/4........ 1/r.
