What Depends on the Welfare Level

A country is “a land that is controlled by a single government.” There are more than 190 countries in the world. Some countries welfare level is high and some countries welfare level is low. Some countries are over-populated and some countries are under-populated.

What is the definition of welfare? The definition of welfare is living in abundance and comfort. What does the welfare level depend on? Well it can depend on the countries per capita income, being safe in the country, health of the people living in the country and social life. Also welfare depends on the countries population. Because the more the population of the country, the more money is needed to keep the welfare level high. The fact that countries have a lot of natural resources makes the country rich. With this wealth, the smaller the population, the higher the per capita income. For example small country in middle easts deserts named Qatar is the world’s 53rd largest economy and the highest welfare level amoung the countries. Qatar has per capita income of 70 thousand dollars. As you can see Qatar is the world’s 53rd largest economy but because of the low population of Qatar is the highest welfare level amoung the countries. At the same time there are negative situations brought about by the low population of countries. If the population is less, the labor will be less. If the labor is less the countries economy will go into recession.

Now let’s talk about high-populated countries in the world. As I said the more the population of the country, the more money is needed to keep the welfare level high. Let’s give an example United States of America (USA). America has a population of 330 million. So that is making America 3rd in the population among the countries.   What about economy and the welfare of United States of America? America’s gross domestic product is about 21 trillion dollars. And this shows that America is the largest economy in the world. What about per capita income of America?  According to the World Bank US has 65 thousand dollars per capita income. That makes America 9th in the World. What about the other countries in the world? In top 10 of per capita income there is only 1 country that has a population of more than 100 million. And the same situation in top 40.

As a conculation, even if the national product of the countries is high, if the population is high, the per capita income will decrease and the welfare level will be low. For that reason there should be balance between population and gross domestic product. In that situation countries welfare will be higher.
