Benin - Population Density (people per sq. km)

124 (people per sq. km) in 2018

Population density is midyear population divided by land area in square kilometers. Population is based on the de facto definition of population, which counts all residents regardless of legal status or citizenship--except for refugees not permanently settled in the country of asylum, who are generally considered part of the population of their country of origin. Land area is a country's total area, excluding area under inland water bodies, national claims to continental shelf, and exclusive economic zones.Sources: Food and Agriculture Organization, UN Population Division and ADB Statistics Department..
