This paper demonstrates the importance of treating urban populations as heterogeneous when making national population projections. Large metropolitan areas are shown to exhibit specific patterns of migration, age composition, and fertility when compared with urban areas as a whole. It is argued that the path of demographic change at a national scale is not independent of the urbanization scenario selected, i.e., one emphasizing the expansion of large cities or, alternatively, a balanced settlement hierarchy.
