Population Growth and Poverty
This is all about how population growth connects to Poverty.
THE PLAIN VANILLA FACTS
These are just the simple, but important facts. Take children in Kenya for example. They don't have access to a good education, so therefore, there are very few jobs open to them. Which eventually leads to poor health and nutrition. And then it leads to high rates of child mortality and poor cognitive skills. The lack of jobs provided for them then leads to needing more children to provide labor, such as farming or working in factories. And the cycle just repeats itself. So poverty and population growth do go together, because the more the population grows, the less jobs that are available for kids and adults in third-world countries.
