The measurement of the properties of proton-proton interactions at center-of-mass energies ranging from 900 GeV (injection energy) to 7 TeV in the ATLAS detector are presented. The charged-particle density, its dependence on transverse momentum and pseudo-rapidity, and the relationship between transverse momentum and charged-particle multiplicity are measured for events with at least one charged particle in a defined kinematic range. The measurements are compared to Monte Carlo models for inelastic events and to results from other experiments.
