The 2015 datasets have a variable called v105 described as "type of place of previous residence". The value labels are 1 for 'town' and 2 for 'city'. Is it possible to distinguish this by rural or urban location as is done for the variable v102 ("type of place of residence")? I would like to create a variable capturing whether an individual moved from a rural to a rural location or from a rural to an urban location, etc. How can I tell whether 'town' is referring to an urban or rural area?

Thank you in advance.
