Explanation:
After writting "6 millones" I would write: p.e. (populacion estimada) to make sure the abreviation is understood. If this is the first time the abreviation appears in the document is perfectly fine. This will also allow you, if there are more of this abreviation, to just write p.e. in the next one.
