Low standards of living:
In developing nations general standards of living tend to be very low for the vast majority of the people. These low standards of living are manifested quantitatively and qualitatively in the form of low incomes (poverty), inadequate housing, poor health, limited or no education, high infant mortality, low life and work expectancy and sometimes a general sense of hopelessness. Income levels in Ghana and Nigeria are relatively low as compared to levels in the developed world. The distribution of GDP is also severely unequal.
