You can see how population density works near your home. Some areas near where you live have lots of people living there. Other places have fewer. When many people live in a certain area, that area has a high population density. The map shows this on a national level. People in the United States move more freely than people in most countries. As they move and settle, and as immigrants come to this country, the population grows in some places but not others.
