Conclusion- Andorra and Tanzania are contrasting countries in many ways. Andorra is a tiny country in Europe whose population is nowhere close to one million people, while Tanzania is a mid-sized African nation with a population of 49.25 million. What I found fascinating about the two countries is that the infant mortality rate and the rate of natural increase are very similar despite the wide gap in their HDI ratings (Andorra – 34, Tanzania – 159). Andorra had an IMR of 3% and a rate of 3.82% natural increase, while Tanzania has an IMR of 3.8% and a natural increase of 3.1%. A wide gap can be seen however, in the average life expectancies (Tanzania – 61 years, Andorra – 82 years). There is a major difference in GDP per capita ( $1,654.49 / $40,507.12), literacy rate (67% / 99%), and the amount of secondary education for women (5.6% / 75%). This data really shows the differences and similarities between developed and developing countries.
