population density

The number of organisms, usually people, living within a defined space, such as a city, county, or town. In the U.S., regions with greater population densities tend to have different health care problems than lightly populated ones. Conditions such as gunshot wounds, HIV/AIDS, and tuberculosis are more common in cities than in rural areas, but cities also tend to have a greater health care infrastructure and more professional resources than rural areas.

With population densities eight and 22 times the global average, respectively, India would have to devote 4 per cent of its land to solar parks to meet all of its energy needs, and Bangladesh more than 10 per cent.
The association between GPS-tracked and ACS commuter variables was stronger in cities and block groups with higher population densities. This finding might be attributable to a higher prevalence of activity tracking application users in more densely populated areas: information given to CDC by the data provider indicated the most densely populated city (San Francisco) also had the most GPS-tracking application users per capita (4.1%).
