Enter the total number of people and the area in which those people live into the calculator. The calculator will evaluate and display the population density.


Population Density Formula

The following equation can be used to calculate the population density of an area.

D = P / A

  • Where D is the density
  • P is the population number
  • A is the area

In the case of population density, we use a total number of people per unit area. Normally in math, density is a mass or number per unit volume. When analyzing populations, volumes don’t make much sense to look at, so we use area.
