Paraguay Area and Population Density

The South American country of Paraguay is a landlocked nation in the center of the continent, that shares its borders with Brazil, Argentina, and Bolivia. The geography of the land varies from subtropical rainforest to swampland, to savanna- much of which is uninhabitable and covers 157,048 square miles (406,752 square kilometers) of area. This ranks Paraguay 60th in the world in terms of the area alone. Largely because of its landscape, Paraguay is a very sparsely populated country. Using the 2017 population of 6.811 million people, the population density of Paraguay is 43 people per square mile (17 people per square kilometer), which ranks them 169th in the world in terms of population density.

Largest Cities in Paraguay

Nearly two-thirds of the population of Paraguay live in, or around, an urban area, and several cities are home to these people. The capital of the Paraguay, Asunción, is also the largest city in the country with 525,294 people living within the city proper, and over 2.2 million living in the greater metro area. In addition to being the political capital, Asunción also serves as the hub for all things business, education, religion, tourism, and sports as well. The second-largest city in Paraguay in Ciudad Del Este with 293,817 citizens. Ciudad Del Este is known for its diversity and being an economic hotspot. Other cities in Paraguay with populations over 200,000 include Luque, San Lorenzo, and Capiatá. Something all of these cities have in common is lack of housing due to overpopulation and pollution from poor waste disposal, threatening widespread disease in these areas.
