SEX DISTRIBUTION OF POPULATION. The sex distribution of population refers to the classification of a given population according to sex or gender (i.e. male and female).
Sex distribution can easily be obtained from a population census of a given country which shows the total number of males and the total number of females.
A knowledge of the total number of males and females in a country will assist the government to make the necessary plans to cater for the population.
If, for example, the population of the female is higher than that of the males, it means government will have to plan to provide goods and services for more people because such a country will give rise to high population.
Nature has, however, tried to balance the number of males with that of the female in such a way that the difference in number between the two is usually very small.
