      • GDP (per head) – explain the link between this and FR
    • LEDC: Bangladesh
      • Population: 149.7 million
      • Population density: 1040 people/km 2
      • Population growth: 1,91%
      • BR: 28.9%
      • Agriculture: 66%
      • Industry: 10%
      • Services: 24%
      • GDP per head: $380
    • BRIC: Brazil
      • Population: 191.2 million
      • Population density: 22 people/km2
      • Population growth: 1.05%
      • Agriculture: 23%
      • Industry: 24%
