List of countries by population density Totally Explained (371 words)
List of countries and dependencies by population density in inhabitants/km².
The list includes sovereign states and self-governing dependent territories that are recognized by the United Nations.
Note that figures are simply estimates of population divided by total surface area and should not be considered either as reflecting density in the urban sense or as indicative of the ability of a territory’s land to support human habitation.
Population density - Encyclopedia, History, Geography and Biography (694 words)
Population density is a measurement of population per unit area or unit volume.
Population density is a common biological measurement and is often used by conservationists as a more appropriate measure than population size.
City population is however, heavily dependent on the definition used for the urban area: densities will be far higher for the central municipality than when more recently-developed and as yet administratively unincorporated suburbs are included, as in the concepts of agglomeration or metropolitan area, the latter including sometimes neighbouring cities.
