Population density: |

Calculate population density instantly with our easy-to-use Population Density Calculator. Simply input the total population and land area and then click the calculate button.

## Population density formula

The formula for calculating population density is:

**PD = TP / LA**

- PD = Population density
- TP = Total Population
- LA = Land Area – (unit – 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

## Solved example

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

Given values,

- Population = 50,000
- Land Area = 25 km²

Put all values into 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.
