In biology, a population is all the organisms of the same group or species, which live in a particular geographical area, and have the capability of interbreeding.
The area of a sexual population is the area where inter-breeding is potentially possible between any pair within the area, and where the probability of interbreeding is greater than the probability of cross-breeding with individuals.
Cities' population densities vary significantly across the country. Jurisdictions with the highest population densities tend to be concentrated in northern regions, particularly the New York. Health statistics on insurance coverage, disability, fertility and other health issues are increasingly important in measuring the nation's overall well-being.
