Abstract
We classify the asymptotic densities of the Delta(0)(2) sets according to their level in the Ershov hierarchy. In particular, it is shown that for n2, a real r[0,1] is the density of an n-c.e. set if and only if it is a difference of left-Delta(0)(2) reals. Further, we show that the densities of the w-c.e. sets coincide with the densities of the Delta(0)(2) sets, and there are n-c.e. sets whose density is not the density of an n-c.e. set for any n epsilon omega.
