The number of Salvadorans living in urban areas has increased significantly over the past 40 years. In 1970, 39% of Salvadorans lived in urban areas, and today 70% of them do. This has produced a variety of impacts from urban sprawl, to resource demands, to a reduction of land devoted to farming. El Faro has a photo gallery here which illustrates some of the impact when city meets countryside.
