In conclusion, it is obvious that these two countries are very different. First off, Sudan has a much younger population, where as the US has a population based around middle age. I know this because of the RNI. Sudan (22) USA (5). This also shows that Sudan has a largely growing population where as the US has a growing population, just much slower. In the US, it is easier to sustain a family which lets people have less babies. In Sudan, 49 infants out of 1000 live births will die. The life expectancy is also almost 20% shorter in Sudan. Parents will have more kids there so there will be a greater chance of a family continuing its generations. I was surprised that Sudan also has a literacy rate over 70%; I thought it would be lower then that. Another big difference is the economies between these two countries. The GNI (GDP) PPP per Capita is almost a  $50,000 dollar difference. This shows that Sudan doesn’t have much money which is one big reasons why it is ranked 166 in the world.
