Human Development ReportsIn the course of my final, final FINAL I MEAN IT THIS TIME bits of of research for the marketing plan I am writing, I found this remarkably encompassing set of statistics about Uganda. Some of them are really interesting. Its interesting to compare some of the statistics - on the distressing side, see the % of the population living on under two dollars a day, life expectancy, and fertility rates. On the other hand, some things like immunization rates and literacy rates are quite good in comparison. Seems like there's certain specific (but don't get me wrong, important) things that international aid can have a significant effect on, although broader issues I guess are harder to tackle - ie life expectancy, income, and access to clean water.
For comparison, the same statistics for Canada.
