You Don’t Understand Third World Problems

First World= Small Family and Long Life Expectancy by contrast, Third World= Large Family and Short Life Expectancy

In 1964, United States had Small Families and Long Life Expectancy and as we might expect, Viet Nam had Large Families and Short Life Expectancy. But things changed. In 2003, United States still had Small Families and Long Life Expectancy, but Viet Nam had caught up. In 2003, Viet Nam’s Family Size and Life Expectancy were identical to the U.S. Rates in 1974 at the end of the Viet Nam Conflict.
