Jakarta, the capital of Indonesia is the largest city of Indonesia. Jakarta covers an area 662 square kilometers.  The latest national census in 2010 put the city population at 9.58 million, with an annual growth of 1.4 percent, or 135,000 people per year. With its current population, Jakarta has a population density of 14,476 people per square kilometer.

The population of Greater Jakarta, which comprises Jakarta, Bogor, Depok, Tangerang and Bekasi (Jabodetabek), reached 27.9 million according to the 2010 national census, with a growth rate of 3.6 percent per annum over the 2000-2010 period.

Jakarta is close to being overpopulated and swift actions are needed to rein in the impending population boom.
