List of countries by population density


List of countries by population density

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. The list also includes but does not rank unrecognized but de facto independent countries. The figures in the following table are based on areas including inland water bodies (lakes, reservoirs, rivers). Data are estimates for July 2005, taken from the United Nations World Prospects Report (2004 revision), unless noted otherwise.

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. Names of dependent territories as well as recognized states with no or limited control over their territory are shown in italics.
