3. ATTRIBUTES OF UNDER-DEVELOPMENT: GHANA
I have chosen Ghana to answer this question.
The four characteristic attributes of underdevelopment applied to this country, are
explained as follows:-
PER CAPITA INCOME
Per capita income of Ghana (as of 2015) is 4150 PPP $. It is a low per capita income
making the country an underdeveloped nation
POPULATION GROWTH RATE
Population Growth Rate of Ghana is 2.2 % (As of 2016) nearly double the world
population growth rate. This high population growth rate shows that it is an
underdeveloped nation
UNEMPLOYMENT RATE
Unemployment rate of Ghana is 11.9% (2015) is quite high compared to 7.2%
estimated unemployment rate of the world so Ghana demonstrates this attribute of
underdevelopment very well.
DEPENDENCY RATIO
Dependency ratio of Ghana is 19.7 which is also quite high.
Ghana was started on a good footing after gaining independence. If the trend
were allowed to continue, the country would be in a better economic shape
than now. Tragically, the country’s defenders contributed immensely to the
problems the country is facing to date. Their numerous involvements in the
political system did not benefit Ghana in any way; it rather sent the country
many years backward.
