Island Populations

Islands are home to 11% of the world’s population. While some are uninhabited, others reach mind-boggling densities. Java is the world’s most populous island and the third most populous landmass after Afro-Eurasia and the American continent. There, 148 million people share an island the size of Louisiana.
