Area and population of European countries

Area and population of European countries

=List of countries/dependencies by population density=

The whole of Russia and Turkey are referred to in the table, although they are partly in Europe. The Asian nations of Azerbaijan, Georgia, and Kazakhstan are generally considered to have small European portions.

Serbia and Montenegro are listed as separate countries, although at the time of the estimates they were also considered as one country.

Cyprus is generally considered to be part of southwest Asia. It is listed as one country, although it is currently de facto divided between the primarily ethnically Greek and internationally recognised Republic of Cyprus and the "Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus", which is recognized only by Turkey.

Unlike the figures in the country articles, the figures in this table are based on areas including inland water bodies (lakes, reservoirs, rivers) and therefore the population densities stated here may be lower.

The aggregate for Europe excluding Turkey, Russia, Ukraine, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Georgia, Armenia and Moldova, the population density is 105 persons per (including them it is 31, mostly due to Russia's vastness).
