Which one of the following statements defines the density of population?


ANSWER

Number of persons living per unit area


SOLUTION

  • The number of people living per unit of an area (e.g. per square mile).
  • To calculate the population density, you will divide the population by the size of the area. Thus, Population Density = Number of People/Land Area.
  • The unit of land area should be square miles or square kilometers. You can use square feet or meters if you are finding the density of a smallish space.
