(2000) and then uses regression to re-express the transformed APEs in the same scale as the original APEs. In conforming to Census Bureau cohort-component projections, the shareof-growth projection method performs noticeably better than either of the other ratio methods. In comparing shift-share with constant-share, we do not feel that the MAPE metric is appropriate for reasons cited above, and we do not feel that the GMAPE metric is appropriate because the APEs produced by the constant-share model are not log-normally distributed.

For this reason, understanding the spatial and environmental consistencies in the distribution of human population distribution is critical to understanding the impacts that population growth could have on the rest of the Earth system in the future. The population of Earth’s landmasses exhibits spatial structure at a wide range of scales in spite of the fact that human settlement is not a centrally planned activity at global scales (Small et al. 2010).
