Self Determined-Census[edit]

I erased this line, because the CIA census does not mention that. The self-determined census was conducted by the INEC with different results: http://www.eluniverso.com/2011/09/02/1/1356/poblacion-pais-joven-mestiza-dice-censo-inec.html

Alternatively, you can add {{nobots|deny=InternetArchiveBot}} to keep me off the page altogether. I made the following changes:

When you have finished reviewing my changes, please set the checked parameter below to true to let others know.

Question? Archived sources still need to be checked

Update ethnic diversity line[edit]

This sentence uses racial terms that are obsolete: The legacy of both empires is reflected in Ecuador's ethnically diverse population, with most of its 15.2 million people being mestizos, followed by large minorities of European, Amerindian, and African descendants.

Suggest changing to: The legacy of both empires is reflected in Ecuador's ethnically diverse population, as 15.2 million descendants from European, Amerindian, and African descendants, as well as the recent immigration from countries such as China, Lebanon, and Korea.

Power Outlets[edit]

Does the one sentence worth of information about power outlets need to be in the article, let alone in its own section? I want to move it somewhere else, but I'm not sure where. Steele W. FarnsworthTalk 22:01, 17 April 2016 (UTC)

Local Government in Ecuador[edit]

I've read city pages for Ecuadorian cities, but I'm still not sure I understand how local government works in Ecuador, so perhaps this needs to be made more clear. So, generally, are urban settlements governed small and/or large governed at least partially independent of their parish government, or does a parish governed urban settlements and sometimes multiple ones within its border? And then specifically for the cities of Quito and Guayaquil, which seem to be called "metropolitan districts" at the canton level, are all parishes urban and rural administered as a "city" or is there a seperate canton (all parishes) and "city" (urban parishes) government? This really needs to be made more clear probably in the "Administrative divisions" section of this page. --Criticalthinker (talk) 17:05, 19 April 2016 (UTC)
