Running Head: Literacy

Week Three Literacy versus Life Expectancy

University of Phoenix

Life expectancy in countries around the world is a tremendous issue. Many countries believe that an increase in health care is the true cause of a longer life span, whereas others view money as the sole reason people live longer. However, data suggests that people will live longer because of an increase in education. Education is the sole basis for people obtaining higher paying jobs and enjoying the benefits of practical health knowledge. G-20 countries are generally able to provide better education systems and therefore have an increase in life expectancy over poverty stricken nations. ...view middle of the document...

If, a country does not have the modern technologies about, when enthrone with the modern amenities this can cause discomfort (European Psychologist, 2004).
In other area of studies the spending of funds on health care raised the school attendance levels to show some flux in the data collected within the countries. Although these studies did have variance in the data collected because of gender. Depending on what country, age, and wealth; male and female results differ. As do the different life expectancies in the vase countries. No country has the same mathematical outcome as the other on life, health, and wealth (European Psychologist, 2004).
The population in which the samples came was from the G-20 countries. The G-20 is twenty finance ministers and central bank governors of well established and financially sound economies of 19 different countries around the globe. The purpose of the G-20 is to pull the global economy together and rebuild after the financial crisis of the 1990s in which the Asian economies suffered. The 19 different countries that make up the members of the G-20 are Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, France, Germany, India, Indonesia, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Russia, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, Republic of Korea, Turkey, United Kingdom, and the United States of America. These 19 different countries provided an excellent sample size for the research conducted to find any correlations between literacy and life expectancy. The sample demonstrates a broad range of countries scattered all over the globe and they are all well established countries with sound economic status in the world and in good shape financially so they can afford higher learning and education for the people of their countries. Establishing research in the G-20 countries is because they are the countries that can afford to give their populations the best education such as the United States requiring all children from any economic status to enroll in school until they are 18.
Although these are the best countries for this study to determine whether or not literacy is in positive correlation to life expectancy there are still some errors or bias that may occur throughout the study with various countries out of the total 19 countries under review. One bias is that the United States of America is one of the highest or above average countries in both literacy and life expectancy so people have a tendency to link the two automatically but this may not be the case. This is evident when people review data from countries like India because India as a government or country is very well off financially. However, the people of India aren’t given many opportunities for higher learning or education so therefore, it is harder to make the link between literacy and life expectancy. Although a country has the money, it does not mean they will spend the money to educate their population such as the United States of America and other countries. ...
