We determine the spin susceptibility in a variable-density two-dimensional electron system in GaAs/AlGaAs. Our measurements extend over a wide range of low densities from 2 × 10 9 to 4 × 10 10 cm -2. Our data can be well described by an empirical equation which incorporates both the density dependence and the magnetic field dependence of the spin susceptibility. It can explain the anomalous g-factors reported recently in GaAs electron and hole systems. The extrapolated paramagnetic spin susceptibility increases with decreasing density as expected from theoretical calculations.
