Some people say anything
Last night I saw an "investigative news" program on the TV. It's called "Informe Central", and their headline story was about an abandoned factory in San telmo (where tourists go to see typical BA and locals go to see tourists).
The thing is, that factory has been taken over by poor people who live there. It's conveniently located, and they don't pay anything.
On the other hand, it's a nest of drug, rape, poverty and violence, but that's not the only thing these "journalists" said.
They said they lived in inhumane conditions, up to 2.6 persons per square meter.
They also said about 300 people live there, which would mean there are roughly 115 square meters in the factory.
Which is, actually, closer to 1200 square meters. or maybe 5000. But they kept on saying those numbers.
Do you know that in order to have 2.6 persons per square meter so that each of them has a small (double) bunk bed, you would have to put the bunk beds one next to the other with 20cm-wide spaces in between?
How the hell did they get that number? Is that a sign of their regular investigative quality? Probably.

I am afraid none will knows WFK some people make maths.

For take some ground.
My grandfather knows the nahuatl and the spanish language. As he is the only one that can talk, he account for 1 person. But as note 2 says, all my family (10 persons) are automagically nahuatl speakers.

Población indígena (1) por lengua (2) , porcentaje de hablantes de lengua indígena y ubicación geográfica, México, 2000
1 Se refiere a la población en hogares en donde el jefe, el cónyuge o algún ascendente declaró hablar alguna lengua indígena.
2 Se asignó a los miembros del hogar la lengua hablada por el jefe, el cónyuge o un ascendiente, independientemente de la lengua declarada por cada uno de ellos; en caso de hablarse distintas lenguas.
I wouldn't be surprised if they just took the densest area they could come up with (even if it was area that was 2.6 square meters in size) and then said that number, since it was 'up to' 2.6.
