In humanities class we have been using Gapminder to find out the differences between two countries. I chose the two factors: “Children per woman (total fertility)”, and “Mean years in school (women of reproductive age 15 to 44)”. On the graph it shows that these two are interrelated, the trend is that the more educated females tend to mate less, compared to the less educated.
Sweden’s statistics were 1.9 children per woman, and the mean years in school per woman is 13.
Chad’s statistics were 6.7 children per woman, and the mean years in school per woman is 1.5.
The trend is very visible here.
