This statistic displays the population density in the Netherlands from 2006 to 2016 in inhabitants per km². It shows that the population density between 2006 and 2016 increased from 483 to 504 residents per km². The total population in the Netherlands has increased since the 1950s, as this statistic shows. Since 1950, the population nearly doubled, from seven million people to seventeen million. As a consequence, the population density also increased. As according to a recent forecast the population of the Netherlands will continue to increase slowly. In 2060 over 18 million people are expected to live in the Netherlands. If no changes in the Dutch territory will take place, the population density will likewise increase.
