C++11

float load_factor() const noexcept;

Parameters

None

Return value

The following example shows the usage of std::unordered_map::load_factor() function.

#include <iostream>
#include <unordered_map>

using namespace std;

int main(void) {
   unordered_map<char, int> um;

   cout << "load_factor of unordered_map = " << um.load_factor() << endl;

   return 0;
}

Let us compile and run the above program, this will produce the following result −
