It can also be thought of as indicating the potential return on investment in human capital and is necessary for the calculation of various actuarial measures." (CIA World Factbook) Crime Traffic in drugs relates to high rates of property and violent crime
25 per 100,000 murder
5473 per 100,000 crimes against property

Although The Bahamas has over 200 schools, many students do not graduate with a diploma. While The Bahamas offers higher education opportunities, Switzerland offers more. The Bahamas clearly does not have as good of an education system as Switzerland, which could relate to why the life expectancy is much lower. Obtaining a good education plays an essential role in life. In Switzerland violence is unheard of. Even though many people carry guns for safety reasons, there are rarely any gun violence incidents. It is interesting that almost half of the people who convict criminal offences are foreigners. Compared to Switzerland, The Bahamas has a much higher crime rate. The Bahamas is invovled in drug trafficking which relates to property and violence crime. High crime rate leads to more deaths and is an unhealthy way to live which lowers the life expectancy. In addition, when there are alot of criminals who go to jail, they are not living up to their full life potential. Nutrition and lifestyle has an impact on life expectancy. In order to live long lives, people must eat healthy foods, exercise, and stay away from drugs. In Switzerland, more than half of the population pays attention to what they eat. This plays a factor in why the obesity is only 7.7% compared to 70% in The Bahamas. In the Bahamas sugar, salt and fat products are highly consumed which leads to the risk of heart disease and diabetes. Overall, the population of Switzerland lives more healthy lifestyles which is a reason why the life expectancy is higher than The Bahamas.
