Occupation distribution is the grouping of the population of a country into different productive sectors or occupations.

Occupation distribution can be divided into three stages; Primary Occupation, Secondary Occupation and the Tertiary Occupation.

Factors Influencing Occupational Distribution  / Causes of Occupational Distribution:

1. Government policies in the areas of expansion.
2. Inadequate capital to carry out some economic activities.
3. The level of training and research.
4. The higher the rate of literacy the higher the people in tertiary and secondary occupation.
5. Limited market size.
6. Inadequate skilled labour and poor infrastructural facilities.
7. Political instability, high level of corruption and increase in crime rate.
