A bit more than the population of Sweden, a much more developed country. The Crude Birth Rate is 34.0, yet the percentage of the population living below 2 US dollars per day is a whopping 89.8 percent. This could be due to the fact that the infant mortality rate is 87, therefore pushing mothers to have more children to carry on their bloodline. The literacy rate for burundi is surprising at 86.9 and the percent of GDP spent on education is also high at 6.07.
