The primary purpose of this research work was to investigate and analyze the spatial distribution and the integration of Rwandan Cities. The results revealed that the economy of Rwandan Cities is subordinated to Kigali City in which the intensity of economic is very little higher than others. The analysis of their spatial distribution using the distribution of neighbor proximity analysis revealed that the spatial distribution of cities in Rwanda is random where R tends to zero (0). The analysis of correlation between the number of cities in Rwanda and the number of superficies using the correlation coefficient formula indicated that no correlation exists for their distribution. Based on these result, a decongestion system may be a good solution to this dependency of Rwandan Cities.
Key words: Rwanda, city group, neighbor proximity analysis, spatial distribution, spatial integration.
