Abstract


The term density of population refers to a ratio between population and land area. There are several means of describing the spatial distribution of population . 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 te that population is not evenly distributed within the city. Since, however, the urban population is also not evenly distributed, (R. M Northam, 1975). Geographers have studied urban population densities and found that there are similarities and regulariti es in urban densities. The urban density models are developed by C Clark (1951), J. Tanner and G. Sherratt (1961), and B. Newling (1969) to express the statistical relationships between population densities and urban distance.In this research paper attempt is made to analyze spatial variation in urban density of Ahmednagar district and compare it with Ahmednagar city. The study of urban density of Ahmednagar city is the expression of general relationships, between distance and urban density . Th is associatio n is a formalized for explaining the general situation of density and distances. B. Newling model of spatial variation in urban population densities is applied for stud y.
