    1. El Salvador's population growth has slowed, with a decline in the number of youths and a slowly aging population. Life expectancy is 71 years for men and 78 years for women (2014 estimate). Over one million Salvadorans, or approximately 20 percent of the population, live abroad, mainly because of economic and social hardship within their native country. During the civil war, an estimated 75,000 Salvadorans were killed.

      I found this interesting because El Salvador has quite a small population, so 75,000 people is a lot of people to die in a civil war.

      I find that the last part of this is pretty interesting. Seeming that El Salvador doesn't have that big of a population, a civil war where 75,000 people died is pretty huge.
