## Population Density Formula

The population density formula is given below.

PD = P / A, where
PD = population density
P = population
A = land area
The standard unit is that measures the density of population on Western land is in square miles, but you can use any unit that you like.

## How to Calculate Population Density?

Let's look at an example of how to calculate the population density of a town. Let's say there are 10,000 people in a small town, and the area is 10 square miles. To find out the density of this town, we plugin the above formula

PD = P / A
PD = 10000 / 10
PD = 1,000
Therefore, the population density of this town is 1,000 per square mile.

## What is Population Density?

Population density is a measurement of people living in a certain location, the density is the number of people divided by the size of the area.

## What does a high population density mean?

High population density means that the population is high relative to the size of an area. The following are the countries with the highest population density.

1. Macau
2. Monaco
3. Singapore
4. Hong Kong
5. Gibraltar

The benefit of a high population density is that there is usually better infrastructure, more resources, convenient transportation, economic growth, and demand for housing.

The disadvantage of a high population density is that the costs of living are usually higher, and more competition in the job market, and social and environmental problems.

## What does a low population density mean?

A county with a low population density means there are a small number of people living in a county relative to the size of the county. The following are the countries with the lowest population density.

1. Mongolia
2. Namibia
3. Australia
4. Mauritania
5. Iceland

There are pros and cons to living in a county with a low population density. The pros are that you can spend more time in nature with cleaner air.

The cost of living will be lower in a low population density state, and there are usually fewer crimes.

You will live a more relaxed lifestyle and have more freedom to do the things that you like. There will be less competition in the job market so it is easier to pursue what you like to do and get paid.

The drawback of living in a low-population density county is that there are fewer resources and fewer public transportation that you can access.

Although there is less competition in the job market, there are fewer jobs.

Sometimes, it may feel lonely to live in a county with a low population density because you may be surrendered by nature.

## Why is population density important?

Population density is important to see if a county is overpopulated or underpopulated. It is also an important factor to predict the population growth in an area and helps the government build infrastructure to support the people in the area.
