Area and population of European countries

From open-encyclopedia.com - the free encyclopedia.

List of countries/dependencies by population density

in inhabitants/km².

The whole of Russia and Turkey are referred to in the table, although they are only partly in Europe. Georgia, Armenia and Azerbaijan have been included, although they can also be considered part of Asia.

Serbia and Montenegro are listed as separate countries, although they may also be considered one country.

Cyprus is listed as one country, although it is currently de facto divided between the primarily ethnically-Greek Republic Of Cyprus and the "Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus", which is recognized only by Turkey.

Unlike the figures in the country articles, the figures in this table are based on areas including inland water bodies (lakes, reservoirs, rivers) and may therefore be lower here.
