The article considers the difficulties, limits and prospects of research onurban population at the microscale. It examines particularly the sociodemographicatlases published over the last twenty years. The development of this type ofresearch is fairly recent in the field of population geography. Nevertheless, microscalestudies offer interesting prospects. Given their practical usefulness, it is highlydesirable that they be largely developed.
