Followed by ๐Ÿ‡ซ๐Ÿ‡ฐFalkland Islands (Malvinas) with a density of 0.3 people/kmยฒ, and ๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡ณMongolia with 2.7 people living per square kilometer, if said population is spread out evenly across its land mass.

The geographic region with the highest population density is projected to be Asia with a density of 165.0 people per square kilometer. Closely followed by Africa with a population density of 70.8 people/kmยฒ, and Latin America and the Caribbean with 36.1 people living per square kilometer.

When devided into sub-subregions we can see that Southern Asia had the highest population density of 366.9 people per square kilometer. Closely followed by Caribbean with a population density of 213.8 people/kmยฒ, and Micronesia with 201.4 people living per square kilometer. While the sub-region with lowest population density for the year is projected to be Australia/New Zealand with only 4.5 people/kmยฒ.

If we devide the global population into income groups we can see that Lower-middle-income countries has the highest population density of 162.3 people per square kilometer. While the lowest population density is recorded by No income group available with a population density of only 29.5.

How is Population Density calculated?

Population density indicates the number of people per unit of land area. In this case, the population density is calculated in square kilometers (kmยฒ) of the area.

Population Density Formula

Population Density = population / land area in kmยฒ
