Two Picture Analyses: Picture No .1 : The graph was constructed taking into account the national Gross Domestic Product (GDP) of countries with available data and connecting it to the Maternal Mortality Rate of Women per 100,000 live births (WHO). Both of these sets of data have a very strong relationship and can b used to display Throughout history the WHO has decreased in every country, therefore improving the lives of most women, but even in the modern world some countries have an exceptionally high WHO per 100 000 live births, mainly in less developed countries / regions that have minimal access to important medical treatments and technology. Lower GDP results In a higher WHO The graph clearly displays a strong negative correlation …show more content…

Conclusion: “Low female literacy rates and low gross domestic product results in higher fertility rates and higher maternal mortality rates. By improving literacy and education of women this pattern could be changed.” The statement written above is correct and can be supported by the graphs above. It is evident that a higher GDP in families can help provide young women with the education they need to avoid having a large amount of children and keeping them informed about the benefits of a healthy diet and lifestyle.
