What is the current guidance on the tabulation of urban/rural residence by wealth quintiles? In the past there has been discussion on the potential for urban bias. Are there suggested approaches/calculations to address this?

The first step is to define urban and rural areas based on specific criteria, such as population size, population density, economic activities, infrastructure, or administrative designations. Different countries may have their own definitions, which could influence the calculation of wealth quintiles.
