These differences are narrowed down but not limited to these categories; income levels, education levels, standards of living, health, life expectancy, and access to food and water. If these variables are taken into consideration and used to analyze the various countries in the world, we can see how diverse societies really are. From third world countries such as Ethiopia to first world countries that we are more than blessed to live in such as Canada, the scale varies
