population density = ( number of people ) / ( number of square miles )

population density of AL = ( 4,779,736 people ) / ( 51,718 square miles )

≈ 92.419 people per square mile

population density of MO = ( 5,998,927 people ) / ( 69,709 square miles )

≈ 86.057 people per square mile

The average state population density is 87.4 people per square mile

So...Alabama has a more dense population than the national average,

and Missouri has a less dense population than the national average.
