I'm trying to figure out if planets are equally distributed in galaxies (I'm assuming they aren't) or if there is some logic behind their distribution.

    $\begingroup$ All of our data about planets concerns a fairly small region in the arms of a single (probably barred) spiral galaxy. We don't know anything about global distributions in any galaxy and have no data whatsoever from elliptical galaxies. $\endgroup$ – dmckee Jan 10 '16 at 2:53
