    testing the evenness of regional distribution

    I have got an organization whose members are from different regions of the country. There are N different regions, and the population is distributed among them like a,b,c,d...%%.
    The distribution of the members of organization from the regions is A,B,C,D ...%
    What is the correct way to test the hypothesis that observed distribution in organization does not coincide with the distribution of population?

    Thanks a lot in advance!

    i doubt if there is only 1 correct way. One option is Goodness of fit - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Note that your null hypothesis for this method would be that the observed samples are in the same proportions as your population.
