Are you more of a city individual or a country individual? Some people are fonder of life in the city rather than the country or vice versa because of many different factors. One factor is the pace of living; some people prefer a fast paced city life compared to the slower, more relaxed pace in the country. Population is also a factor; people may desire to live in a densely populated area similar to the city rather than a sparsely populated one similar to the country. Another factor may be transportation; large cities tend to have public transportation that chauffeurs people throughout the city, where in the country that kind of transportation is either not needed or is not provided. These factors influence the way people make decisions on whether to live in either an urban or a rural area.
The fast paced city life offers more entertainment, sports, shopping, and career opportunities than a slow, more relaxed country life.
The one major disadvantage of city life is the higher cost of living. Some people prefer a fast paced life to a slow and relaxed pace of life. Living in the country also provides a more secluded life with fewer worries about what your neighbors will feel about what you do. Living in the country has proven to be a more relaxed way of life. It seems that the more highly educated an individual is, the more likely it will be that they will be more inclined to live in the city because of higher incomes and business advantages. Although neighbors live further apart, they seem to know each other better and are always there help whenever the circumstances call for it. The city life offers many means of public transportation; which includes taxis, buses, subways, and airports. I hope that this essay has informed you on a few of the many factors that influence where people live. Transportation is a factor that many people think about when moving; cities tend to have public transportation because of traffic congestion. It isn"tmt uncommon to see a few slow moving vehicles such as farm tractors and trucks loaded with produce that will slow down traffic. Transportation in the country is almost always privately owned cars and trucks. Some people feel more secure knowing that their neighbors are in close proximity. Financially challenged people have more opportunities in the city by getting help from the many agencies ready to lend a helping hand. It has also been proven that country air is much cleaner, therefore reducing the risk of respiratory problems.
