The most densely populated places on Earth

Espresso Logo By Martin Morin of Espresso | Slide 1 of 26: While there are 25,105 people per square kilometre in Monaco, there are fewer than 0.14 people per square kilometre in Greenland. Globally, there are 14.7 people per square kilometre (0.39 sq. mi.), but this figure is far from what you’ll find in the world’s most densely populated cities. Such conditions tend to produce similar problems: high poverty, lack of resources, pollution, waste-disposal issues, increased flood risk, natural habitat destruction, and so forth. Here are the planet’s 25 most densely populated cities (500,000 or more inhabitants). Statistics come from the 15th edition of the report titled Demographia World Urban Areas, published in April 2019.
