The concentric circle diagram in geography is a diagram used to illustrate the quality of life in any urban area. It is most often illustrated with four concentric circles; the central circle shows the Central Business District, the second smallest the inner city, the third smallest the suburbs, and the largest the rural-urban fringe. The further from the CBD an area is, the higher the quality of life.
