Area and population of European countries

This is a list of countries and territories in Europe by population density. Unlike the list at List of European countries in order of geographical area, this page includes all entities falling even partially under any of the various common definitions of Europe, geographic or political.

The whole of Russia is referred to in the table, although they are only partly in Europe. European Russia contains about 77% of the country's total population (110,000,000 people out of a circa 143,000,000) in an area comprising roughly 3,960,000 square kilometres (1,528,560 mi2); an average of 27 persons per km2 (69.9 per mi2).

Turkey is not referred to in the table; it is only partly in Europe. European Turkey, or East Thrace, has an area of 23,764 km2 (3 percent of the country) and a population of about 10 million people (about 12 percent of the total); the population density is around 430 people/km2.

The primarily Kazakhstan are generally considered to have small European portions. Armenia and Cyprus, entirely Asia physiographically, have political and cultural ties to Europe. Turkey has a significant portion in what is physiographically considered Europe.

Serbia and Montenegro are listed as separate countries, although at the time of the estimates they were also considered as one country. There is some discussion about whether Kosovo should be recognised as a separate country. De facto it can be considered as one, but de jure recognition is not clear-cut.

Unlike the figures in the country articles, the figures in this table
