I dare to say some very general upward trend is visible by a naked eye. The correlation coefficient is only 24%, but positive after all.
What: Investment or gross capital formation as a percent of GDP in current local currency, GDP per capita growth. When: Investment in 2017, and GDP growth in 2018 (because there should be a lag before the investment kicks in and GDP starts to grow) Where: Countries that have both statistics. Source: IMF for Investment and WB for GDP
This graph is for you to observe the nonexistence of any relationship. The correlation between these two datasets is only 9%. Every region has values across a wide range of debt values, however, each regions’ GDP variation is specific to that region. Conclusion – debt does not mean a better life. I guess – ways of using it do.
What: General government gross debt as a percent of GDP and GDP per capita at constant prices of 2010 in USD. When: 2018 Where: Countries that have both statistics. Source: IMF and WB
After quickly analyzing the most developed countries (HDI >0,8), I noticed that grouping countries according to some culture related patterns is quite easy. More analysis should be done (by someone else), but seems, that suicides have more to do with culture than development. Some cultures are able to handle development better, some – worse.
What: Suicide rate vs human development index When: Suicide rate – 2016, HDI – 2017 Where: Countries with HDI > 0,8 Source: Suicide rate – WHO, HDI – UNDP
Seems like not really. Look, there are high rates among less developed countries, and low rates among more developed ones. What is clearly visible – it’s the higher distribution among well-developed countries!
