About 15% rio's population lives in slums, but some years ago on Google Maps they just showed up slums names, But not any others neighborhoods in Rio.
Google created a lot of false slums names for non-slum neighborhoods.
This is not about "WC" or bla,bla ..but really.
Rio's people were angry, because about 85% dont live in slums.
Apparently there are a lot more according to official statistics
RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL – The IBGE (Instituto Brasileiro de Geografia e Estatistica) has released the findings from its 2010 census which state that 22.03 percent of the 6,323,037 residents of Rio de Janeiro live in favelas, or ‘substandard’ and irregular housing communities.
Rocinha is identified as Rio's largest favela according to the census, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, News.
According to the new report, there are 1,393,314 people in 763 favelas in Rio, ahead of Sao Paulo, whose population in favelas is listed at 1,280,400.
Perhaps the most striking insight when compared with 2000 Census figures from the IBGE (when there were 1,092,283 residents of favelas in Rio, or 18.65 percent of the inhabitants), representing a growth of favela population of 27.65 percent in ten years.
That's almost a quarter of the population, wow I hope things can improve soon
