Central America Population GDP Per Capita & GDI Developed or Developing? Quality of Life and
Life Style Guatemala has the highest population in Central America. It is 14,099,032. For that reason Guatemala might have less jobs and opportunities to go round for everyone. Honduras, El Salvador, and Nicaragua have roughly the same population from 5 to 8 million people to tie in second. Costa Rica and Panama have the third lowest population and are nearly the same. It is around 3 to 4 million people. Belize has the lowest population of 327,719 in Central America. That means there will be more jobs and money to go around to people, but only if the country is stable and developed enough to sustain its money. All together Central America takes up 2.2 percent of the worlds population . Subject: Geography

Teacher: Ms.Villani Money Government By: David.O, Micheal.B, Joshua.N and Christopher. Z Due: November 5th/2012 Central America is located on the tip of Mexico. Central America consists of seven countries. the seven countries are Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras, Belize, Nicaragua, Costa Rica and Panama. Central America consists of islands too in the bottom right image. The smallest country in Central America is Belize, and the largest country in Central America is Nicaragua. The coordinates to the heart of Central America is 14.1792° N, and 87.1875° W. First Topic
Places, Direction and Location. People City l All of Central America is non developed. it is non developed because all of the places there don't have not a lot of money and would need the trading system more than some other places. For example: the World Bank in Washington D.C would give money from other countries to a poor one. But in the end the poor country would be in dept by how much they got from the rich countries. The poorest place in central America is Nicaragua because of its lack of money, technology, job opportunities, and resources both natural and reusable.. Health and Education. Thank you For Your Attention!!!!! Central Americans life expectancy are from the ages 65 to 75+. Life as a Central American would be hard to us because everything they do is way different than what we or many other countries would do. An example for that is their global living standards and how they are ranked lower than most places. If you were to have a low GLS (global living standards) ranking then you wold most likely be in poverty. Imagining living in an undeveloped country wouldn't be great. That would equal to less money, technology, food, water and many more things. Houses are also another big part of living standards, without shelter you wouldn't survive. Central American Produce is dedicated to Quality, Service and Integrity. From Production, through Packaging and Transportation all the way onto your shelves to assure you of the steady and consistent supply of superior produce that you expect from a top supplier. The food that comes into Central America is fresh food transported from all across the world. One of the imports they get are mainly fruits and vegetables and meat. Education Central Americans would be on the bottom, but they should be on the top no matter what. In non developed countries some places would have a corrupt government , so for that reason people are treated like their nothing. People that would live in non developing countries like places in Central America would most likely have a corrupt leader who only cares for money and he or shes well being not the people living in country. People are better than what they are treated like in Central America. Sadly Central Americans don't have that many choices and cannot change the state of their lives without money. Money is the thing that rules the world. We know that there is mixed feelings about that but truthfully the world would go mad without it. Money is the key to life because without it there would be no houses, no technology, no clothes, food and many other things. That is what separates third world countries from first world countries. For example, canadians have more money so they would be able to control instead of being controlled like parts in central America. Health Money
In most countries in Central America, you can use American dollars without much of a problem. But if you're traveling in rural areas, it's always useful to have the local currency on hand.
El salvador - El salvador uses the U.S. dollars as its national currency.
Belize - The exchange rate of the Belize dollar to the US dollar is pegged at approximately two to one, which means one Belize dollar is around 50 cents US.
Guatemala -The exchange rate of the Guatemala to the US dollar is approximately 8 to one, which means they are equal to a US quarter.
Honduras -The exchange rate of the Honduras to the US dollar is approximately 19 to one, which means its around 5 cents US.
Nicaragua -The exchange rate of the Nicaragua to the US dollar is approximately 20 to one, which means its around 5 cents US.
Costa Rica - The exchange rate of the Costa Rica colón to the US dollar is approximately 586 to one.
Panama - Panama also uses the U.S. dollars as it national currency. The access to education in Central America is limited because of child labor. Children have to drop out of school to work for their families. To help this there is an organization named the Association of American Schools of Central America (AASCA). This organization was formed to support and promote academic and cultural interaction between international schools. This offers a proper education from U.S.A. to Central America. This organization also raises money for the students in Central America, cultural diversity programs as well as raising money for free education. Overall it promotes better education for proper job opportunities.The adult rate literacy for all of Central America is 60% to 90%, and the child literacy rate is 70% to 90%. Guatemala: head of state is the president. this country is divided into 22 departments. this country is democratic republic.

Belize: former British colony Belize gained independence in 1981. The prime minister is at the head of the government. Belize i divided into 6 districts.

Honduras: head of state is president. Honduras is also a democratic republic.

El Salvador: This very small country is a republic, divided into 14 departments, with a President at the chief of state, who serves a single five-year term. Voting age is 18.

Nicaragua: Nicaragua is divided into 15 departments with a President as the chief of state, who can serve multiple, but non-consecutive five year terms. Voting age is only 16.

Costa Rica: Costa Rica is a democratic country and has no departments. voting age is 18 and over.

Panama: Panama has 9 provinces and it has a voting policy of 18 and over. Gross Domestic Product (GDP) per capita or gross domestic income (GDI) is a measure of a country's overall economic output. It is the market value of all final goods and services made within the borders of a country in a year. All of the GDP is measured with U.S money .The country that has the highest GDP per capita is Panama with a total of 3,080$ U.S. Following panama is Costa Rica with 2,680. Next is El Salvador with 1,810$, Guatemala with 1,580$, Honduras with 740$ and lastly Nicaragua with 410$. Central America has made many trades for food, grain and water. All Though Central Americans trade has been very dependent on two products: coffee and bananas. Coffee has been the single largest Central American export. Likewise, bananas have been a very important export for Honduras, Panama, and Costa Rica. Due to the importance of bananas and the fact that these countries are republics, these three countries have often been called banana Republic. a way Canada could help other developing countries is by helping other countries with aid epidemics, food and water problems. In central America there isn't much of any of these things, so as long as they help Central American countries in need for primary and secondary resources. The health care in Central America is poor compared to most of the other countries in the world. Although it has increased since world war II the health care in Central America is poor. It has poor medicine and little doctors. U.S.A. has made major donations to try and help raise the health care in Central America but it has only done little help to most of the countries in Central America. In Central America every few years you would have to renew your health insurance and most people can't afford a good insurance so they don't have access to medicine at all. This is the health care in Central America there is also some smaller organization to help with it but, all in all it is hard to come by. Central America also has different types of aid like multilateral aid, tied aid and foreign aid to help the health of non developing countries in Central America. The birth rate for all of Central America is 20 to 40 children (per 1000).
