If at all possible, there should be population vs age groups so if you want to know how many people within the age range of 15-20 or 21-25 or something

Doesn't seem to like circles with smaller radius, e.g. 1 km. I would also like to know how many households there are in the chosen area, e.g. so we can roughly work out how many people need to be contacted about a new road scheme.

The numbers for my area seem to be very close to what I was expecting (based on US Census).

I m sorry to say that this is crap! A 20km radius around Zagreb gives 93,019 People, but there are 10 times more people in the area. Please indicate how you calculate these numbers

This was highly inaccurate and I suggest to never use it

What year are these Statics from?

Inaccurate at all. Tried a few locations in the Middle East and results were way off.

Useless tool. Inaccurate population numbers and tools don't work. good idea, horrible execution.

Hi,This program works very hectic and uncertain. 1st problem: how can I mark certain area? The two incon above does not work. 2nd problem: in case of direct input sometimes I get the shaded area and the calculation run well. Then other time if I enter new range,I don't get a new shaded area, and the calculation not runing. In certain circumtances for range 800Km I get less population than for 700 Km! How possible this ? Good idea , but not excellent development! Regards,Joe

Very poorly done. I realize it's "Free Map Tools," but you have done much better. Seems to be more of a guess loosely based on local statistics rather than anything resembling reality.

Incredibly inaccurate. Shows less than a seventh of my town's population!

worst and misleading software. dont change the dimenions and you will find same population across all region.
By Sachin tendulkar on 29th July 2016

I am thankful to the developers of this platform.But I sorry the results are not accurate at all. How can a municipal capital like Dunkwa-On-Offin in Central Region,Ghana have the same population as that of Accra
