what does population density mean? i searched it up on the dictionary. com , but i still do not understand

  • question -

    Population density counts the number of people per square mile (or square kilometer).

    Deserts and high mountainous regions have very few people so they have a low population density. Big cities, where hundreds of people may live in the same apartment building, have a high density population.

    Check this U.S. population density map. Notice that the darkest colors represent the areas with the highest densities. The lightest colors are used for low-density population.
