(→Measurement: Add median density as metric / add refs / rearrange list) 

There are a variety of other ways of measuring the density of urban areas:
* [[Floor area ratio]]  the total floor area of buildings divided by land area of the lot upon which the buildings are built▼

** Populationweighted density  a density metric which measures the density at which the average person lives. It is determined by calculating the standard density of each census tract, assigning each a weight equal to its share of the total population, and then adding the segments.<ref> {{cite web  url = https://ssrn.com/abstract=3119965  doi = 10.2139/ssrn.3119965  title = On PopulationWeighted Density  last = Ottensmann  first = John R.  date = 1 Feb 2018

* Residential density  the number of dwelling units in any given area
▲* [[Floor area ratio]]  the total floor area of buildings divided by land area of the lot upon which the buildings are built
▲* [[Population density]]  the number of human persons in any given area
* Employment density  the number of jobs in any given area
* Gross density  any density figure for a given area of land that includes uses not necessarily directly relevant to the figure (usually roads and other transport infrastructure)
* Net density  a density figure for a given area of land that excludes land not directly related to the figure.
▲* Weighted density  a density metric which measures the density at which the average citizen lives. It is determined by calculating the standard density of each census tract, assigning each a weight equal to its share of the total population, and then adding the segments.
