Surname Distribution

The frequency of a surname indicates how popular a name is compared to the population of the nation.

The density of a surname aims to highlight how concentrated the surname is in any one location at that time compared to the national average. A density equal to '1' indicates an even distribution, i.e. equivalent to the national average.

A density greater than '1' indicates a higher, than normal, concentration of the surname. This could indicate the place of origin of the surname, or just a more fertile bunch of families. This is clearly evident in the following examples.
