Differences between Developed, Developing and Underdeveloped Countries

In order to classify a particular country for variety of term such as developed, developing or underdeveloped, the factor that used was according to their economics status based on per capita income, literacy rate, living standard etc.

Developed countries have industrial growth, whereas developing countries depend on the developed countries for help to establish their industries. Developed countries enjoy flourishing economy, whereas developing countries begin to taste the growth of economy and underdeveloped country on the other hand face a weak economic growth and poverty.

Other than that, the developing countries are characterized by many shortcomings. These shortcomings include less awareness regarding matters relating to health, poor amenities, shortage in water supply, shortcoming in the area of medical supply, a higher rate of birth rate. The most important and worrying factor in the developing countries are the factor of poor nutrition and source of food.

Indeed, poor nutrition is toward both mothers and infants are the main concern in the developing countries. Due to high birth rates, the probability of natural diseases is more in developing countries. Hence the death rates are also eventually high in developing countries. It is the same picture for underdeveloped countries which experience high death rate and health problem for their citizen since they are lacking in the health expertise and consciousness. Developed countries are characterized by a low death rate and low birth rate as well. There is usually a very small gap between the two rates in developed countries.

Developed countries are not characterized by shortcomings. They are well-developed in all fronts and are served well by water supplies, amenities, educational institutions, health care concerns. This is because of the fact that people are endowed with awareness about every possible aspect relating to human existence. The absence of shortcomings in the developed countries is possibly due to the fact there is a low birth rate in these countries. Nutrition is available in plenty to mothers and infants in developed countries. The invisible of these factors was distinguishing the developing and underdeveloped country to the developed country.
