There are Two types of Screen Density as following.

  1. Overall density of screen :
    The overall density of screen is measure by the percentage positions of a character on the overall screen.

  2. Local density of screen :
    Local density is a measure of how “tightly packed” the screen is at a specific region of the screen.

Example-1 :
Let’s consider the Text using Space i, e unordered.

Note –
In this case: overall density will be 13% (13 lines) so much space is used.

Example-2 :
Let consider the data in this screen.

Note –
In this case, overall density will be 5% (5 lines) so 8 lines space is reduced. So this screen is best.
