## Housing Density Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Housing Density.

HD = H / TA

- Where HD is the Housing Density (houses/miles^2)
- H is the total number of housing units
- TA is the total area (miles^2)

To calculate the housing density, divide the number of housing units by the total area.

## How to Calculate Housing Density?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Housing Density.

Example Problem #1:

- First, determine the total number of housing units.
- The total number of housing units is given as: 800.

- Next, determine the total area (miles^2).
- The total area (miles^2) is provided as: 20.

- Finally, calculate the Housing Density using the equation above:

HD = #H / TA

The values given above are inserted into the equation below:

HD = 800 / 20 = 40 (houses/miles^2)

Example Problem #2:** **

For this problem, the variables needed are provided below:

total number of housing units = 2150

total area (miles^2) = 594

This example problem is a test of your knowledge on the subject. Use the calculator above to check your answer.

HD = #H / TA** = ?**
