...that is a funciton of the population


Explanation:
Barbara, your sentence is a bit mysterious or perhaps we need more context. I am going to leave aside "numero minimo"
In funzione della popolazine would perhaps be best translated with an appositional sentence of the type, "that is a function of the population" which should also help clarify that minimo.
