Prior to the amalgamation, Hauho – which was unilingually Finnish – had had a population of 3,934 (31 December 2008)[2] and covered an area of 443.13 square kilometres (171.09 sq mi) of which 86.42 square kilometres (33.37 sq mi) was water.[1] The population density was 11.1 inhabitants per square kilometre (29/sq mi).
