The density shows how much premium income is paid per capita [1] and helps to understand the presence and development of legal protection insurance in a country. It does not, however, show the average price paid by customers for legal protection cover. Countries where legal protection insurance is mainly sold as a stand-alone insurance rank higher than countries where legal protection insurance is dominated by add-on products (e.g. the UK) or countries where the market is equally shared between stand-alone and add-on (e.g. France). In 2015, eight countries have above average €13.99 (€13.51 in 2014) density rates.

[1] It is calculated by dividing gross premiums by the number of inhabitants per country
