Transcript of A Trip Around the World

GDP stands for gross domestic product, and it's important to a country's economic performance, as well as it's considered a link to the county's standard of living. That means, the higher the GDP per Capita, the better life is typically in the country. The GDP per Capita is calculated either by adding the incomes of every person in that country, or totaling the value of all goods and services produced by the country. In Germany, the GPD per Captia was $44 262.41 (in CAD) in 2012. This means Germany had the 21st highest GDP per Capita in 2012.
EPI Rating (Continued)
A Trip Around the World
Welcome To Germany!
Throughout this presentation, you’ll learn about several
factors that make up the country of Germany, including,
but not limited to, population density, life expectancy, as well
as connections between all of those factors. Germany is
known as a very clean and beautiful country with high living standards and many benefits. As the third most developed
country in the world, the great majority of the people there are literate, and it is rated the 53rd best country in the world. We
know the population varies from year to year, but we can
assume that the majority of those people are well educated and intelligent.
Located below Denmark and next to Poland on the map, Germany is a part of Europe.
A Prezi by Sara McCafferty
Germany has a population 81. 89 million people, along with a population density of 233.19 people per square kilometer, the 33rd largest population density in the world. This information was recorded July of 2012.

EPI Rating
EPI stands for Environmental Performance Index. According to Yale University, the EPI is created to "rank countries on performance indicators tracked across policy categories that
cover both environmental public health and ecosystem
vitality". Germany is rated 11 with a score of 66.9 as
shown in the chart above. Countries with similar
performance include Italy, Slovakia,
Netherlands, United Kingdom,
and Belgium.
This graph is a little different, but it compares all of the countries scores and
ratings while showing trends (if they are improving or not and by how
much). Left to right, it shows the least to greatest scores, and bottom
to top, shows those declining to those improving, and by how
much. The horizontal line through the graph separates
those considered "improving" and those considered
"declining". The vertical line separates what is
considered "high performance" and
"low performance".
Literacy Rate
A literacy rate determines what percent of the country is literate. The definition of literate in this case is: "Someone of the age of 15 and over able to read and write". In 2003, 99% of females and 99% of males met the requirement in the definition, making 99% of Germany's population literate in total.
Birth Rates and Death Rates
A birth rate is a count of how many
live births there were per thousand people
per year. This is typically recorded throughout countries, and it can be used to infer the population
in future years along with other necessary
information. This includes death rates from several previous years, to look for patterns. A death rate is a count of how many deaths there were per thousand people per year. In Germany, the death rate of 2012 was 11.04 deaths per 1000 people, and the birth rate of 2012 was 8.33 live births per 1000 people. From this information, you can tell that the population probably went down because the birthrates were lower than the death rates, but there are more
factors that would need to be included in this prediction to be sure of a population
decline, such as immigration and
emigration rates.

Life expectancy
Life expectancy is how long someone is expected to live. You can find out the life expectancy of an individual person, or find the average of how long a group of people will live, although both types of predictions would be calculated differently. In Germany, the average life expectancy was 80.255 years in 2013. To be more specific, females were expected to live 82.58 years, and males were expected to live 77.93 years, making Germany have the 28th highest life expectancy overall. Life expectancies around the world range from 89.63 years (in Monaco) to 49.07 years (in Chad).
GDP Per Capita
Is Germany a Developed Country?
Yes, Germany is certainly a developed country.
In fact, Germany is the third most developed country
in the world. I think this is because of the high GDP per Capita, because a high GDP per Capita means high living standards. The government is stable and is run as a democracy, and judging by the literacy rate, most people are educated or will be educated for future years of development. However, even though equal rights between men and women have been fought for, a poll conducted nationwide in 2010 revealed that at least 80 percent of those surveyed believed that men still have more opportunities for better paying jobs in Germany, even if a woman was more qualified. I believe equal rights are important for the development of a country, so the law of "No person shall be favoured or disfavoured because of sex, parentage, race, language, homeland and origin, faith, or religious or political opinions. No person shall be disfavoured because of
disability" proves as well that Germany is
in fact a developed country.
Researching about Germany, I noticed that all of
the information I found indicated that it's simply a great
place. Seeing that Germany has a high EPI rating and
literacy rate, that hinted that it was a developed country before
I researched it and knew for sure. There are several factors that need to be thought when deeming a country a developed one, and I noticed Germany had all of those. Other connections I noticed were the connections between birth rates, death rates, and population. As mentioned earlier, you can estimate if the population will increase or decrease based on the birth and death rates, and Germany has had a fairly unchanged population since 1960. The EPI rating could also indicate a population change, or more specifically, a population decline. The Environmental Burden of Disease section under the Environmental Health level of aggregation scores countries based on how well they can handle mass diseases, typically counting financial cost, along with other factors such as the number of deaths to calculate the score in that section. Germany had quite a high score in that section, so I can predict there will be no sudden
decline in population due do an health issue taking lives.
In the end, all of what I explained to you today has a
connection with something else, and that's what
makes the country of Germany how it is now.
Thank you for listening, and I hope you all
have safe travels!
(The difference between Germany's life expectancy and Spain's life expectancy in 2011 is 3.65 days.)
