Haiti like many other poor countries has a high percent of population living below the poverty line and this is probably due to the fact that not many get education there since the literacy rate is only 48.7%. Also the government doesn’t spend much on education since the % of GDP spent on education is 1% it is probably very difficult to get an education so child labor is probably very common in Haiti.

Italy is a very developed country and already has a negative natural increase of -1.3% which means that the population is shrinking. As crude birth rate decreases and the crude death rate decreases there will be a shift in the population so that the majority of it will be older people and there will be less youth, such as what is occurring in Japan.

Haiti and Italy are different in many ways since Italy has almost 6 times the population size of Haiti. However, there are some similarities like for example neither country has a big problem with HIV/AIDS and both countries spend a small percent of GDP on education, 1% and 4.5%. Haiti, however has a greater amount of youth in their population whereas Italy has more grown middle aged people in their population. Some of the factors contributing to that are crude birth and death rate, literacy rates, and gender inequality.
