Landlocked states were defined as states without oceanic coastline or access to the ocean through water bodies such as the Mediterranean Sea, the Black Sea, or the Persian Gulf.
The total number of landlocked states were counted, the sum of the densities was determined, and by division of these figures, the mean population density of landlocked states was calculated.

 FAL BULLETIN Issue No. 203, July 2003 - THE ECONOMIC COSTS ASSOCIATED WITH LANDLOCKED STATUS
Their landlocked status effectively forces them to export and import products through borders with neighbouring countries; for this purpose, they frequently use land transport modes which are intrinsically more costly than ocean transport.
That is, although it is the seat of government of a landlocked country, in terms of transport costs of imports, La Paz is in a more advantageous situation than certain parts of Mato Grosso or other states, departments or provinces that are far from the sea although they belong to countries with a maritime coast.
Moreover, the landlocked countries, partly because of their lack of a maritime coast, tend to have less dynamic economies than their neighbours and greater difficulties in obtaining financial resources for investment in infrastructure works.

 Towards development in landlocked economies
Landlocked developing countries are usually among the world’s poorest.
The literature analysing the impact of transport costs on development is of long standing, but the specific case of the high transport costs faced by landlocked developing countries has been largely overlooked in both the theoretical and the empirical literature.
suggests a new possible reason why landlocked countries may have a low level of development: the greater relative uncertainty to which landlockedness gives rise may have a negative effect on investment incentives in the tradable sector of such countries.

 Landlocked Article - Daniel A. Suchman, Real Estate Lawyer
A property that is landlocked is one that has no legal means of access.
However, prescriptive easements are not favored by the Washington courts, the burden of proving each element is upon the landlocked owner, and it is rare that a landlocked owner can actually establish one.
If Owner B is successful in obtaining access by any one of these methods, that means of access will usually be deemed “appurtenant to” Lot 2, and can be used and enjoyed by future owners of Lot 2.

 "Landlocked Gam" Review by Jay Langguth
The event, entitled Landlocked Gam was the result of efforts by Professor Robert Wallace of Northern Kentucky and Professor Robert McCauley of Rockford College to bring students from differing backgrounds together to participate in a dialogue centered on Melville's continuing power to inspire artistic creations of various kinds.
Landlocked Gam, in addition to bringing together the lighthearted with the serious, also combines the personal with the symbolic, or iconic.
Melville writes in his poem "Art" that in successful art unlike forces "meet and mate." What gams and works of art have in common, then, is the ability, if things go well, to bring contrary forces together for the sake of some greater whole.

Then you notice the sails are attached to a person skimming across the water, a carefree joyrider who occasionally adjusts his kite's direction and soars to astonishing heights.
For (mostly) landlocked Pennsylvania, the increasingly popular East Coast sport doesn't seem an obvious fit.
But more people each summer have been using Erie's Presque Isle State Park as a launching pad for the wind-driven sport, also known as kitesurfing, that isn't yet a decade old.

There is a growing body of empirical evidence illustrating that being land-locked represents a significant economic handicap and a barrier to growth.
Those countries which are remote from their key markets incur greater transport costs and, therefore, to remain competitive, wage rates are forced lower to accommodate the higher transport costs, which has a severe impact on resource intensive sectors, such as garment production.
The overall impact is that land-locked countries, and their economies, are unusually vulnerable to both exogenous events and the actions of other countries.
