Wk5 + Wk6- CH4: Health & Mortality

Go back over some of the data they collected.
  1. In general, how do US states compare to the LDCs and MDCs?
  2. Look at the death rates for all geographic areas, in general what do you notice? (are they similar? higher? lower?)
  3. What about birth rates across the different regions?
  4. Given what we've discussed about the lower mortality rates, what do you expect to see in your LDCs in terms of population ages (age structure)?
  5. Look at the states tab, do you see any differences across regions?
