This interactive map shows national estimates of the percentage of the population falling below the poverty line. That is a quite problematic situation to map, since the operational definitions of poverty vary considerably among countries. Also, there are some counties without data (Central Africa, North Korea, etc.) However, there is still considerable value to be gleaned from this map. What regional patterns do you notice? How will this map inform our understanding of migration patterns and political unrest?
This map show that most countries in Africa and south America are suffering from poverty. The country suffering from the highest amount of poverty is Chad. it has 80% of its people in poverty and countries around Chad also experience high amounts of poverty. Many articles state that the government there is corrupted. i too believe that the government is corrupted. i hope that the government helps the people and not themselves. People are dying every minute in areas like this due to famine. there are many children who are left to fend for themselves and are abandoned at the very young age as their families couldnt afford to fill another mouth. i believe all this can end if the government does something for the people.
