## Population density formula

The formula for calculating population density is:

**PD = TP / LA**

- PD = Population density – per square meter or per square miles
- TP = Total Population
- LA = Land Area – square km, square miles

## How to calculate population density?

To calculate population density,

Here are the steps to calculate population density:

- Determine the total population
- Determine the land area – as square kilometers (km²) or square miles (mi²).
- Divide the total population by the land area

**For example – **What is the population density of a city which is spread over 25 square meters and has a population of 50,000?

To calculate the population density then used formula

PD = Total population/land area in a square unit

Population Density = 50,000 / 25 = 2,000 people per km²

Population density of a town = 2,000 people per km².
