Literacy Rate In most cases, a country’s literacy rate is the percentage of people age 15 and above who can both read and write. An official literacy rate is only one indicator of a nation’s overall educational level. May developing countries report literacy rates based on a official language that a majority or significant group of people does not even speak let alone read.
Life Expectancy How long a person can expect to live from birth
Unemployment Rate: How many people are out of work. The US Census Bureau will break down by gender, age, race, family type, presence of children under 18, number of workers in the family. Only ½ the picture. Some not in the labor force are caring for young children or agin parents. Some have simply given up looking for work or are “unemployable”. These figures are NOT included in the unemployment rate. http://www.bls.gov/web/laus/laumstrk.htm
Infant Mortality Rate: The number of children per 1000 live births who die before their 1 St birthday. It is an overall indicator of the overall health of a population, since infants who die at this age usually are subject to preventable diseases or birth defects related to the mother’s health. Those who die at birth often do so due to a lack of prenatal care and medical attention at birth. Countries with populations who have access to health care, clean water, nutritious food, and education are more likely to have a low infant mortality rate than people populations without such acess.
