Common Questions in Regards to Population Density

What is Population Density?

Population density is a measurement of population per unit of land area. The metric is mostly used in regards to human populations, while sometimes utilized for animal life forms and other organisms. On this page we make use of the population per square kilometer (people/kmยฒ) to illustrate the population density of Zambia.

What useful information can be derived from Population Density?

The population density is a useful metric for understanding and visualize how populated a country, region or territory is, in general. It's also important to understand that most countries are highly populated in specific regions. While the population density only take people per square kilometers, spaced out evenly throughout the total area, into account.

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 Zambia's area.

Population Density Formula

Population Density = population / land area in kmยฒ
