population of Uruguay, economic problem, Montevideo, Punta, Este

The population of Uruguay is 3,386,575 (2002 estimate). The average population density is 19 persons per sq km (50 per sq mi). The population is concentrated near the coast. Only 9 percent of the population is rural. Migration from farms to cities and the resultant strain on cities has been a serious social and economic problem. Since the 1960s tourism has stimulated the development of beach resorts east of Montevideo. The most famous of these resorts, Punta del Este, draws vacationers from all over the world. In the interior cities, economic activity centers on agriculture.
