Abstract:
Advanced communication and transportation facilities in Kerala caused rural urban classification difficult. The present study tries to delineate the typology of settlement in Southern part of Kerala by analysing the mode of transportation chosen by the households in the region. The study depends on primary and secondary sources of information. To delineate the typology of settlement in Southern Kerala, two districts namely, Thiruvananthapuram and Kollam have been selected based on random sampling method. Based on the proportionate sampling method, of the 400 samples, data have been collected from 176 samples from Kollam and 224 households from Thiruvananthapuram districts. Multivariate technique like discriminant analysis is used to classify the rural - urban characteristics based on mode of transportation. It is found that mode of transport is a good indicator in discriminating rural - urban characteristic in the region and it is capable to delineate the typology of settlement in both the districts.
