Population density

Population density  in Austria

Population density: Description

Population density is a statistical indicator that compares the number of inhabitants with the area of a region. Population density is measured with inhabitants per square kilometre. The population density can be used to evaluate the type of settlement in a region: How many households live in one building? Is it an urban centre or a rural area? How densely populated is the region? Are significant parts of the region not built-up? etc. All these implications naturally also have an impact on the quality of life and the number of social interactions. The population density should also be compared with the population development of the region to get a more complete picture of the situation. The population density in Austria is not as high as in the world's major cities and Austria is in the middle of the international comparison with a population density of about 106 inhabitants per km². The regional differences within Austria are particularly exciting, as some municipalities and districts differ considerably from the average.

Similio offers numerous Population density comparisons with interactive maps. There is a separate map for each Austrian municipality. Further maps for Population density are available at the level of political districts, landscapes, regions and at the level of federal provinces.
