Death Rate and Birth Rate of
El Salvador

Birth Rate

The birth in El Salvador is relatively high as in every other Latin American country, or even wider, every other LEDC countries. This includes Latin America, Africa and Asia. This is due to the large number of young mothers, which are often naïve and non educated so young men abuse of that. Those young mothers now carry a responsibility from a very early age, although many babies don’t make it to even a year, the birth is already added to the country, no matter if the baby dies early or as an old adult. This is clearly a big problem in the country. 25.72/1000

Death Rate

The death rate in El Salvador is really high as well; of course all of this is relative. This is due to the poor health centres and the low amount of money the government invests in them. The old have often disadvantages, in MEDC the buses have even ramps for make old peoples ride easier, but here the buses are old and are simple. So that’s a big reason why old people die, because there are no clear advantages. Other crucial factor is that food is in abundance in El Salvador for average people, so people, many of them, starve, or eat bad. Many old people are used to eat bad things which are bad for your health and they end up dying because of that. Others die simply because they don’t eat at all. 5.53/1000
