The paper shows that the current economic and geographic concepts of the urban conglomeration development are advisable to be supplemented with sociological concepts concerning the processes presently taking place in large urban systems; and offers to see an urban conglomeration as a single social space. We also formulate the tasks of socio-diagnostic researches, subjects of which are urban conglomerations. Our special attention is given to the criteria of whether a community is included into a conglomeration areal in order to define the real boundaries of a conglomeration.
