Global population density

Next to ur list of the world's largest countries we also provide this ranking by population density. The countries ranking by population density is by far headed by microstates like Monaco, Hong Kong and Singapore.

The second line is dominated by countries well known for their poverty rates. Large families are here the warrantors against elderly poverty. But also the giants in export and industry like Taiwan or South Korea can be found near the top.

The United States comes 71th with a density of 33.0 inhabitants per square kilometer.
