The term density of population refers to a ratio between population and land area. There are
several means of
describing the spatial distribution
. Geographers, demographers,
sociologist, and statisticians have made their contribution in developing the means to describe
population distribution and concentration (RC Chandana, 2003). It is truism to sta

not evenly distributed, (R. M Northam, 1975).
