More than 80 million people live in Germany, but the population is very unevenly distributed. Around one third of the inhabitants (25 million) live in 82 large towns. Around 50.5 million live in towns with populations of between 2,000 and 100,000. Some 6.4 million people live in villages of less than 2,000 inhabitants.
With a population density of 230 people per square kilometre, Germany is one of the mostly densely populated countries in Europe. There are distinct differences between the former West Germany and the former German Democratic Republic. In states that were once part of East Germany, including East Berlin, the population density is 140 people per square kilometre, while in the former West Germany the figure is 267 per square kilometre. More than seven million foreigners live and work in Germany. Turks make up the largest proportion, followed by Serbs, Italians, Greeks, Bosnians, Herzegovinians, Poles and Croats.
