Argentina and Uruguay are the two most developed Latin American countries, with the largest middle classes and the greatest degree of urbanization. Argentina covers 2,700,000 sq. km. and has a population of 23 million, of whom 8 million live in what is known as Greater Buenos Aires (the capital and its suburbs). Uruguay covers 187,000 sq. km. and has a population of 2,600,000, more than a third of whom live in the capital, Montevideo (1,173,000 in- habitants). In both countries the city dominates over the country-side. Argentina’s urban population stands at 66 per cent and Uruguay’s at 78 per cent.1
