Population density (people per km2) by country in 2018

This is a list of countries and dependent territories ranked by population density, measured by the number of human inhabitants per square kilometer or square mile, and also sortable by total area and by population. The list includes sovereign states and self-governing dependent territories based upon the ISO standard ISO 3166-1. The list also includes unrecognized but de facto independent countries. The figures in the following table are based on areas including internal bodies of water such as bays, lakes, reservoirs and rivers. The list does not include entities not on ISO 3166-1, except for states with limited recognition. Thus constituent countries that are not included on ISO 3166-1, and other entities not on ISO 3166-1 like the European Union, are not included. Figures used in this article are mainly based on the latest censuses and official estimates or projections. Where these are unavailable, projections[1] provided by the Population Division of the United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs are used.[2]

Notes[edit]

  1. ^ The De Agostini Atlas Calendar listed the area of Vatican City as 0.44 km2 (0.17 sq mi) in its 1930 edition[6] but corrected it to 0.49 km2 (0.19 sq mi) in its 1945–46 edition.[7] The figure of 0.44 km2 (0.17 sq mi) is still widely cited by many sources despite its inaccuracy.
    In 2019, the total population was 825, consisting of 453 residents and 372 nonresident citizens. For calculating the population density, only residents are considered.
  2. ^ Kosovo is the subject of a territorial dispute between the Republic of Kosovo and the Republic of Serbia. The Republic of Kosovo unilaterally declared independence on 17 February 2008. Serbia continues to claim it as part of its own sovereign territory. The two governments began to normalise relations in 2013, as part of the 2013 Brussels Agreement. Kosovo is currently recognised as an independent state by 97 out of the 193 United Nations member states. In total, 112 UN member states have recognised Kosovo at some point, of which 15 later withdrew their recognition.
  3. ^ Not recognized by any UN member states
  4. ^ Excludes Crimea.
  5. ^ Recognized by only 6 UN member states
  6. ^ Not recognized by any UN member states
  7. ^ Recognized by only 5 UN members states
  8. ^ Not recognized by any UN member states
  9. ^ Including the population and area of Autonomous Republic of Crimea and City of Sevastopol, Ukraine's administrative areas on the Crimean Peninsula which are claimed by Russia.
  10. ^ Administration is split between Morocco and the Sahrawi Arab Democratic Republic, both of which claim the entire territory.
  11. ^ Excludes Crimea.
  12. ^ Including the population and area of Autonomous Republic of Crimea and City of Sevastopol, Ukraine's administrative areas on the Crimean Peninsula which are claimed by Russia.
