Population Density means __________________.


ANSWER

No. of persons living per sq. km.


SOLUTION
  •  Population density is the number of people per unit of area, usually quoted per square kilometer or square mile (which may include or exclude, for example, areas of water or glaciers). Commonly this may be calculated for a county, city, country, another territory, or the entire world.
  • Population density can apply to any size area, from a building to a nation.
  •  If an area is densely populated, that means a larger number of people live in a smaller amount of space.
  •  If an area is sparsely populated, however, a smaller number of people live in a larger land area.
