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:

  1. Determine the total population
  2. Determine the land area – as square kilometers (km²) or square miles (mi²).
  3. 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.
