Transcript of Bangladesh
population and population density
The population of Bangladesh is 163 654 860 as of July, 2013. That’s around half of the number of people living in the United States! The population is increasing at a steady rate. This means that the birth rate is considerably greater than the death rate, which may pose as a problem in future years.
Considering the fact that the U.S.A is around 68 times larger than Bangladesh, Bangladesh must have a very large population
density. This, in
fact, is true.
With a pop
ulation density of 1156.13 people per square kilometer (as of 2011), it’s no wonder living conditions are extremely poor.
Who, what, and Where?
Who? Why, it's Bangladesh of course! This name is derived from the two Sanskrit words, "bangla" and "desh". The word "Bangla" means "people who speak Bengali", and "desh" means land, or country. Altogether, the name means "land/country of the people who speak Bengali."
What? It's the flag of Bangladesh. The red circle, slightly to the left of the flag, represents the rising sun, along with the sacrifices Bangladesh had to make in order to achieve independence. The green background represents its lush vegetation.
Where? Bangladesh is located in Southern Asia. To its North, East, and West is India, to its South-East is Myanmar, and to its South is the Bay of Bengal.
Birth and death rate
Literacy rate and life expectancy
GDP per capita
As of 2013, the birth rate of Bangladesh is 22.07 births per 1000 people, and the death rate is 5.67 deaths per 1000 people. As you can see, the birth rate is almost 4 times the death rate. This could be because of the extreme poverty throughout the country,
needing children to help
Child labour is, after all, a huge problem in Bangladesh. However, I
quite surprised the death rate is not
er, since, as I mentioned earlier, the
g conditions for many people are very
It must be because of the extreme poverty rate in the country that the average person is only expected to live to 70.36 years (females: 72.31 years, males: 68.48 years). In Bangladesh, many people aren’t lucky enough to have the lifestyle we take for granted. Here, we have free health care, proper shelter, enough food to eat, and plenty of clean water; these are all luxuries in Bangladesh. Generally people with bad living conditions do not get a good education,
which is how the literacy rate ties in with the life expectancy. Only 57.7% of the total population (15 years and up) is literate. This means that a little under 70 000 000 people living in Bangladesh are illiterate! Without a good education, they aren’t able to get good jobs, so they are often left doing unsafe and underpaid work. After researching and discovering all of this information, I find it completely understandable why most people don’t live long lives in Bangladesh.
For those of you that don’t know, the GDP per Capita is basically how much money, on average, people in the country make every year. The GDP per Capita of Bangladesh is $2100 US dollars, as of 2012. However, this is just an average amount. S
people make much more money than that, while many people earn much less. This pr
oves that Bangladesh is a third-world country, because $2100 a year is definitely not enough to support a family. Here, in Canada, most people spend more than $2100 in one month, keeping up with groceries, bills, mortgage, and other expenses. It’s crazy to think that the money we so carelessly spend on Xboxes, iPhones, branded clothing, and other unnecessary things generally cost more than what people in Bangladesh have to spend in a year.
Is This country developed?
As far as the Environmental Performance Index goes, Bangladesh is not doing too well. With a performance score of 42.55, and a ranking of 115 out of 132, Bangladesh is definitely not one of the most environmentally developed countries.
Bangladesh is a developing, not developed country. Based on the information I have provided in this presentation, you can see that there are many factors contributing to this statement. The country has failed to meet the standards that make it a safe, healthy, and happy place to live. Not only are its literacy rate, life expectancy and GDP per Capita extremely low, but about 32% of the population is under the poverty line. That's around 52 000 000 people! Those people do not get the same privileges we do, and they spend their lives in destitution. I hope that someday, in the near future, Bangladesh will be seen as a developed country for its citizens.
