Population Density - Most Densely Populated Nations
The population density is calculated from the country's population and the land surface area of the country (population by square kilometer (km²)). Not recognized in this list are countries with a high population density even though the country has a great surface area, but big parts of the land are unhabitable due to deserts, mountain ranges, jungle and swamplands or land that is permanently covered in snow or ice.
