Population density (people per km2) by country in 2018
Population density (people per km2) by country in 2019

This is a list of countries and dependent territories ranked by population density, measured by the number of human inhabitants per square kilometre 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 (in Italian) listed the area of Vatican City as 0.44 km2 (0.17 sq mi) in its 1930 edition[7] but corrected it to 0.49 km2 (0.19 sq mi) in its 1945–46 edition.[8] 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 non-resident citizens. For calculating the population density, only residents are considered.
  2. ^ Also known as the Republic of China. Both the Republic of China and the People's Republic of China officially claim to represent the whole of China, stating that China is de jure a single sovereign entity encompassing both the area controlled by the PRC and the area controlled by the ROC. Neither the PRC nor the ROC officially recognise each other's claim to statehood, and they compete for diplomatic recognition as the only legitimate representative of China among other states. See: Political status of Taiwan, Cross-Strait relations, One-China policy, 1992 Consensus, and Two Chinas.
  3. ^ State in free association with the United States.
  4. ^ The political status of Kosovo is disputed. Having unilaterally declared independence from Serbia in 2008, Kosovo is formally recognised as an independent state by 97 UN member states, while Serbia continues to claim it as part of its own sovereign territory.
  5. ^ State in free association with the United States.
  6. ^ State in free association with New Zealand.
  7. ^ Not recognized by any UN member states.
  8. ^ Excludes Crimea.
  9. ^ Not recognized by any UN member states.
  10. ^ State in free association with the United States.
  11. ^ Not recognized by any UN member states.
  12. ^ Including the population and area of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea and the City of Sevastopol, Ukraine's administrative areas on the Crimean Peninsula which are claimed by Russia.
  13. ^ State in free association with New Zealand.
  14. ^ Disputed territory. Administration is split between Morocco and the Sahrawi Arab Democratic Republic, both of which claim the entire territory. The Sahrawi Arab Democratic Republic's administrative control is limited to approximately 20% of the territory, with the remaining 80% of the territory occupied by Morocco.
  15. ^ Excludes Crimea.
  16. ^ 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.
