Although El Salvador is relatively a small country, the administrative division is quite complex.
A "departamento" - department - is divided into "distritos" - districts -, and these into "municípios" - municipalities -.
These "municípios" constists of "ciudades" - cities -, "villas" - villages -, "pueblos" - towns -, "aldeas" - hamlets - and "caserios" - settlements -.
Some "municípios" include "colonias urbanas" - urban colonies -. Larger cities are divided into "barrios" - neigbourhoods -.
In stating population figures some sources are not quite clear which kind of the above divisions they actually have used, so this may give strange raptures between the columns in consecutive years.
