Birthrate: The proportional distribution of births between male and female sexes will affect the distribution of population.
Deathrate: The distribution of death-rate between the male and female in an area will effect the sex distribution of the remaining population.
Migration: Men usually move more than women, thus a higher migration of people from one area will reduce the proportion of men in the area from which they move and increase the proportion ofmen.
Culture of the people: Some cultures allow men to move to other areas, leaving their wives at home. In such cultures there will be more women than men in the remaining population.
Factors Affecting Occupational Distribution of Population
Culture of the people: In some societies women are not allowed to occupy certain positions. Their culture forbids it.
Availability of educational institutions: The kinds and varieties of educational institutions will affect the occupational distribution of the labour force.
Distribution of educational facilities: Some states have more educational facilities than others such as polytechnics, colleges of education and colleges of agriculture. Such states will have more varied occupations than states with less of such facilities.
Migration: Areas with greater and better economic opportunities will attract more people. The wider the varieties of such opportunities, the wider the distribution of occupational groups.
Natural endowment: The localization of natural endowment will influence the distribution of people with natural talents.
Level of Technological Development: A country that is more technologically developed will have a wider spread of different occupations than the less developed country.
