People seldom reside in isolation. They live in settlements which vary greatly in size, composition, location, arrangement, and function. Settlements exercise a powerful influence in shaping the world’s different cultural, political, and economic systems. Accordingly, the patterns of settlement across earth’s surface differ markedly from region to region, from place to place and from time to time. It is important to analyse the organization of settlements as it helps in knowing the ground reality for providing balanced regional development by giving services according to the spacing of settlements. In this paper an attempt has been made to analyse the organization of settlements selecting Aligarh district as study area using nearest neighbour analysis. The result shows that there is uneven distribution of settlements in the study area which is due to the variations in the physical, socio-economic, and political factors.
