The share of urban population in Sri Lanka saw no significant changes in 2022 in comparison to the previous year 2021 and remained at around 19.03 percent. Still, the share reached its highest value in the observed period in 2022. A population may be defined as urban depending on the size (population or area) or population density of the village, town, or city. The urbanization rate then refers to the share of the total population who live in an urban setting. International comparisons may be inconsistent due to differing parameters for what constitutes an urban center.
