Countries with the Highest Population Density
The Tightest-packed Countries on Earth
Population density is a simple function of how many people, on average, live in a given area of a country. Density is a quick and reliable way of gauging how urbanized a country is?more and bigger cities tend to equal a higher density. There are a few caveats to this: the densest countries tend to be very small, as in a small country even a single city would drive up the average density by a huge amount; and, in countries with large unsettled areas, it might not adequately convey how densely settled thepopulatedparts of the country are. These figures are from 2019, the most current data widely available.
