2 Contrasts between developed and developing nations
How does the developing world compare with the developed world in terms of economic, social, and population characteristics? Geographic locations – The developing countries are, for the most part, those countries which used to be colonies of the developed nations or part of a developed nation. Economic conditions – GDP(gross domestic product) Developed countries already have a strong economy with a high GDP while developing nations have low GDP and a higher unemployment rate.

3 Contrasts between developed and developing nations
Social conditions- Developed nations will have a lower birth rate than developing nations due to education, health care, availability of food, etc… Population size and rate of growth – People often emigrate from developing to developed and not vice versa. Growth of population is higher in developing because of social conditions as mentioned earlier.
