For example, police departments may color code entire blocks in a city to indicate that those blocks generally have higher or lower crime rates. Their system consequently does not present the same unity as that of their rivals: there are no broad lines by which to mark their working, and it is neccessary to gather together disjointed legends in every district of India to learn how they propagated their faith. Due to this the voltage on the secondary side will vary depending on load from a few volts to saturation level voltages. In the Northeast and Midwest, the Catholic dominance points to nineteenth- and early twentieth-century immigration from Roman Catholic countries in Europe such as Italy, Ireland, and Poland.

After his death, the Maurya empire, which had endured for ninety years and three generations of kings, crumbled to pieces. The basic task of human geographers is to study the process by which religion, like other cultural characteristics, is diffused from one location and region to another, resulting in a distinctive spatial distribution. The movement provided for strong showings of Protestant denominations that arose during that time. The Bhakti movement also figures prominently in Hinduism. The figures in this report on pentecostal, charismatic and evangelical Christians and on Protestant denominational families were commissioned by the Pew Forum from the Center for the Study of Global Christianity at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary in South Hamilton, Mass. In short, a spatial dimension refers to physical size in one direction in space and there are three spatial dimensions and one temporal dimension that are intrinsic to the universe in which we live.

We can measure the density of a certain type of tree in the forest, the density of fungi growing on one of those trees, the number of squirrels living in your backyard, etc. In terms of human well-being, life expectancy is more than seventy-eight years for men, and the average woman can expect to live more than eighty years. These days Islam is also part of Europe with the immigrations to Europe from the Arab World and from South Asia. A uniform pattern occurs when each data point is spaced within relatively equal distance.

A plurality — more than a third — now are in the Americas 37%. In places such as California, the large Hispanic population has an especially significant impact on the economy, politics, and every aspect of social life: more than one-third of Californians are Hispanic 37 percent , while 42 percent are non-Hispanic white, and a much smaller minority are African American 7 percent.

See for a more detailed explanation of how the estimates were made; see for a list of data sources by country. You can conduct spatial distribution studies to look at where people are moving to and from, and test various factors that could encourage their move.
