عنوان مقاله [English]
Social and economic development in urban areas can have positive or negative effects on professions, markets, livestock, and environment of the surrounding rural areas. Accordingly, disasters and deterioration in the urban areas can threaten the surrounding dependent rural areas. Urban sprawl and integration of the cities into the adjacent rural areas have influences on urban areas in terms of physical, social, economic, and cultural aspects. The mutual relationships between the urban-rural systems make them dependent to each other. The purpose of this research is to investigate the socio-economic impacts of the villages mingled into cities and also to examine the factors of urban sprawl of the Miandoab City.
