How is a “sparsely populated area” defined?

The FAA has avoided defining ‘sparsely populated’ until they gain more experience and data with low-altitude flight operations.

The area where you’re wanting to fly needs to have very few people present, so if you needed to make an emergency landing, the impact on people would be slim to none.
