Area and population of European countries
||It has been suggested that this article be merged into List of sovereign states and dependent territories by population density and List of European Union member states by population. (Discuss) Proposed since January 2012.|

This is a list of countries and territories in Europe by population density. Unlike the list at List of European countries in order of geographical area, this page includes all entities falling even partially under any of the various common definitions of Europe, geographic or political.
The whole of Russia is referred to in the table, although they are only partly in Europe. The primarily Asian nations of Azerbaijan, Georgia and Kazakhstan are generally considered to have small European portions. Armenia and Cyprus, entirely Asia physiographically, have political and cultural ties to Europe. Turkey, socioculturally closer to Asia and the Middle East with a European influence, has a significant portion in what is physiographically considered Europe.
Serbia and Montenegro are listed as separate countries, although at the time of the estimates they were also considered as one country. There is some discussion about whether Kosovo should be recognised as a separate country. De facto it can be considered as one, but de jure recognition is not clear-cut.
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 Russia, Azerbaijan and Georgia, the population density is 105 persons per km2 (including them it is 31, mostly due to Russia's vastness).
