Overall population density is one of the most abused statistics when comparing countries, as far as I am concerned.
Oh, well as far as you
are concerned that's an entirely different matter...
If you compare the US to Australia using population density to arable land, or urban density, you will find things far more
There's a reason the middle of America is called 'fly over country' and it isn't because of the aerial view.
EDIT: My bad, I was comparing square miles density of USA to square kilometers of Australia. I made that correction, and I'm comparing the density of
the Victoria territory to the USA. Victoria seems to have the most people for its size.
Victoria has a density of 23.54 ppl/sq.km.
1 sq.mile = 2.59 sq.km
23.54 * (2.59/1) = 60.97 ppl/sq.mile
At 60.97 ppl/sq.mile the Victoria territory lies right between Arizona (#33, 60.1) and Mississippi (#32, 63.8)
So yeah... no real comparison to Australia urban areas and USA.
