  1. Table entries are ordered by population. The section (municipality) name is in column 1, and the population density d = persons/km\(^2\) is in column 2. See [2, 3]. Appended to the first 2 columns are representative Landsat band filter measurements 1–2 and 378–379 (see text). The measured number of persons/km\(^2\) in the ith section (i.e. \(d_i\)) is the dependent variable to be estimated
