How to use "Suburban area" in context?

Suburban areas are typical residential and commercial areas located outside of metropolitan areas. They are typically characterised by low population density, expansive land areas, and low levels of economic and social segregation. They largely arose from the United States post-World War II baby boom, and have since become a global phenomenon. There are several reasons for suburbanization. One is that the population tends to move to where the jobs are. As suburban areas have become increasingly populous, their employment opportunities have drawn in workers from the central city, which has caused social and economic integration.
