    Its from my textbook so i have to go by this data.

  • geography -

    517,385,900 / 7,941,950 = 65.15 people per square mile in Latin America

    281,422,000 / 3,165,630 = 88.9 people per square mile in the U.S.

  • geography -

    Latin America has a higher population overall, and per a sq. mile. They have a larger landmass and more than double the population of the U.S.

  • geography -

    But Latin America only has about 65 people per square mile, while the U.S. has about 89 people per square mile. The U.S. is more densely populated than Latin America.
