Factors influencing global population distribution Physical factors Climate People prefer to live in temperate climates where there is enough rainfall and no extremes of temperature. A lack of fresh water for drinking or irrigation stops people living in an area. Very high temperatures make farming difficult. Dehydration and heat stroke are other issues. Areas with high humidity are also uncomfortable places to live and can be affected by diseases such as malaria.
Population distribution is a term used to describe how humans are spread across the Earth. Population distribution across the Earth is uneven. Some areas are densely populated, whereas others are sparsely populated. Areas with extreme climates such as hot and cold deserts make it difficult to grow crops and access water. Regions with dense vegetation cover, such as rainforests, provide challenges in terms of access and the lack of services make human inhabitation very difficult. Locations that regularly experience natural hazards can discourage people from settling in the area. Locations with favourable climates tend to be more densely populated as food can be produced, and it provides a more comfortable environment to live in.
Describe and explain the physical and human factors affecting population distribution at the global scale. What might be the physical natural and human reasons for this? The pattern of where people live. World population distribution is uneven. Places which are sparsely populated contain few people. Places which are densely populated contain many people. The number of people per unit of area, usually per square km.
Character of population distribution is one of the focuses studied by urban geography. Using the fifth national census data as basic data and using areal interpolation method, this paper analyzes character of urban population distribution of Shenyang City, Northeast China, in terms of three aspects of statistical character, spatial auto-correlation and spatial structure. Furthermore, this research analyzes the factors affecting the population distribution of the city.

Birth rates can be lowered by any one of a variety of practices: by late marriage and not marrying, as in Ireland; by induced abortion, as in Japan and the eastern European countries; or by contraception, as in all the western countries. An increase of five years in age of marriage in India would result in a decline of about 20 per cent in the birth rate; a decrease of 15 per cent in the proportion of people married would result in a corresponding decrease in the birth rate. But the marriage practices of a society are closely bound up with its social and cultural institutions and hence are not easily or quickly changed.
Multiple stepwise regression is carried out to identify the influencing factors of population dynamics in border regions. Given the increasingly market-oriented migration mechanism, the national reclamation policy has been no longer effective in population attraction in the new century. Education has significantly lowered and will continuously lower the fertility rate in remote border areas.
The main factors determining population distribution are: climate, landforms, topography, soil, energy and mineral resources, accessibility like distance from sea coast, natural harbours, navigable rivers or canals, cultural factors, political boundaries, controls on migration and trade, government policies, types of.
