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

IMHO, my belief is that there a certain number of slums with extreme poverty and crime here in the Philippines.

Heck, there may be a possibility that because of the extremely high levels of poverty and violent crime, you will never even see these on Google Street View

Why?

Because the thugs will attack and damaged the Google Street View car and probably beat the driver to death.

The only way this could happen is if there are multiple police/military escorts.

In a way, it's like sending a Google Street View car to the battlefields of say Iraq or Afghanistan :nuts:

I don't think you hope it improves soon, actually I would like to know what are you trying to prove here? Brazilian people certainly know we still have a lot to do, but as you are so interested about our slums, why don't you check this out?
http://economia.uol.com.br/noticias...moram-em-favelas-ja-estao-na-classe-media.htm

I think you would be able to understand, but, just in case you are not, the article says that 65% of slums inhabitants have already reached the middle class. Oh yeah, I guess you probably have never heard that here in Brazil slums have become something "sacred", cultural, or whatever you wanna call it. These people have cars, internet access, eletronics, complete furniture, in some cases the shack is a big structure of more than one floor. They also study e contribute to our economy, as long as they have money to buy things. So, things are improving, but, some people will never leave the slums, unfortunatelly. Knowing that, I think you should start worring about your country :)

It's really sad seeing those slums. I hope in the future, slums will be a rarity.

They will never be! The predictions about the future of humanity are the worst possible, how could that happen?? But, if it's somehow good, I believe some improvement on urbanization and sanitation will probably be done! (here in Brazil it's already happening in some places)

Not really. For all you know, a number of slums in the Philippines have complete access to water, sanitation, and other basic necessities. A good number of them also have flat screen tvs, brand new cars, acs and other luxurious things. Then later on you just gonna find out they have relatives working abroad, sending them money. :lol:

This parts is true

Apparently, at the moment, one of the biggest exports of the Philippines is: Human Labor

The only way to reduce something like that is for Philippine economy to improve domestically

Why are Brazilians so obsessed with Mexico?
Why are you so obsessed with Brazil? and about Mexico, I used to be obsessed with Chaves (El Chavo del Ocho), perhaps that explains everything :lol: besides, I just think Mexico needs a lot more of your attention than us :)
