Fact #1 – Singapore Has a Higher Population Density than Hong Kong
Many people regard Hong Kong as one of the countries with the highest population density in the world. To a large extent, this is true. Based on their population of 7,182,724 (July 2013 estimate) and their land size of 1,054 square kilometers (sqkm), the population density works out to be 6,815 Residents per sqkm!
However, did you know that Singapore has a much higher population density?
Our 5,460,302 strong population is packed into a mere 687 sqkm land size which means that for every square kilometer, there are 7,948 people! Based on worldwide statistics, Singapore is currently ranked as the 3rd most densely populated country in the world, followed by Hong Kong at a close 4th.
