According to the first financial report, there are currently 21 cities in China with a population density of more than 1,000 people/square kilometer, of which Shenzhen has more than 7,000 people/square kilometers, and Dongguan and Shanghai are in the top three; [wpdiscuz-feedback id=”gu1se3zb5g” question=”Any thoughts on this?” opened=”0″]Cities with high population densities are mainly concentrated in the Yangtze River Delta, Pearl River Delta, Beijing, and Tianjin.[/wpdiscuz-feedback]
The population density here is calculated based on the total area of the built city. However, due to a large number of counties under the jurisdiction of some cities, or the high proportion of mountains and lakes (such as Beijing, and Hangzhou), the population density of these cities is also affected, and if only that of the main urban area is calculated, the gap between major cities will be relatively small.
The 10 cities with the highest population density are Shenzhen, Dongguan, Shanghai, Xiamen, Foshan, Guangzhou, Zhongshan, Shantou, Zhengzhou, and Wuxi. The population density of the top 8 cities exceeds 2,000 people/km².
