Before seeing about population of Dhaka city, lets learn about what it means by population of a country. The number of total people of a country is called its population. It is one of the most needed wealth of a country. This is also called human resource of a country.

It is sure that population is most needed to exist a country. But the problem arises when it is being more compared to the land area of that country. The number of people lives in each square kilometer is called the density of population of the country.

Most of the developed countries in the world are not over populated. That means their population density is lower where the population density is higher in some developing or poor countries.

The density of population is mostly depends on the geographical location of a country also. Near the equatorial area, there lives more people compared to that of near the pole of the Earth. For this, the country which locates near the equator are mostly populated.

Everything is tolerable near the equator as the sun shines regularly on these places. On the other hand, adaptation near the pole is not easy as the weather is not good there.

Bangladesh is one of the most densely populated country with 8th position in the world according to total population. But its area is not so large. Total land area is only 1,47,570 square kilometers and for this its current density is almost 1240 per square kilometer.

The position of Bangladesh according to the area is about 90th among the world. As I already have told that the geographical location is one of the biggest fact about the population of a country.

Bangladesh locates near the equator and for this its population is raising very high. As its population is larger compared to the land area, the way of life is becoming so much difficult here. A large number of people leads their life bellow the poverty line.

However, this problem is decreasing day by day because of increasing awareness among general people. More people are becoming educated and by this way, they are becoming conscious about taking a number of children.
