Statistical Differences

Kuwait and USA

Why I choose these graphs.

We chose these graphs because we thought that these were the most important to Kuwait and how it affects the diets of people.

How does the population, paved roads and arable land affect what people eat in Kuwait?

The amount of arable land tells us how much of the country has good soil for farming. In Kuwait, the land there is scarce for farming, so the people there do not have good access to fruits and vegetables. Instead, they would eat foods they traded with other countries. They do have paved roads in Kuwait which is good because they can trade goods. They can trade some of their food for fruits and vegetables which they don't have much access to. Population affects the food Kuwaiti's eat because they need to know how much food the need to feed each person in the country.

How does Obesity and the GDP affect what people eat in Kuwait?

A GDP of a country can tell us how much a country is spending on several areas. The GDP is lower in Kuwait than the USA because they aren't spending as much money to satisfy their needs. It affects the food they eat because if it cost more money to buy certain foods, people may not buy those foods as often as the foods they eat more often. Obesity also affects the food they eat because it will make several people eat one kind of food. And, there won't be enough food for everyone else.
