In conclusion my undeveloped country, the Philippines, ranked at 117 isn’t far behind my developed country, Chile, ranked at 41 in terms of education. Both countries literacy rates peak over 95%, and in both countries more than 65% of the women have received at least some secondary education. But when speaking of economics, the Philippines is trailing far behind, with 40% of the population of 98 million living below 2$ US a day! While in Chile 0% of the population is living below 2$ US a day. In terms of health I was surprised to find out that % of population ages 15-49 living with HIV/AIDS is lower in the Philippines with .1%, and Chile at .4%. I was also surprised to see the migration numbers. People are actually leaving the Philippines with migration at -1.4%, while in Chile their net migration is .3%. The percent of Chile that is urban, 89.59% is twice what percentage of the Philippines is urban, 49.29%. The Philippines RNI is close to being 2%, and with a population so large, that’s quite a bit of people. While Chile’s RNI is under 1%. Overall both countries are very tropical lying on the border, but their ranking definitely accurately depicting their overall status.
