It also a significant factor in a society the population growth rate, which in the case of Pakistan is 1.45% (2016 estimate).
The population growth rate is based on two elements, the birth and the death rate. In Pakistan the birth rate is 22.3 births / 1,000 population (2016 estimate), the death rate 6.4 deaths / 1,000 population (2016 estimate).
In this day and age in developed societies, the first child borns later compared to the previous centuries and decades, so childbearing is extended. In Pakistan, the average age of mothers at the first childbirth is N/A.
Although the children’s birth is postponed in the best-case scenario, the parents can still see their kids grow as life expectancy also extended. In the case of Pakistan, these figures are. With the introduction of modern medicine, vaccinations, and the proper hygienic conditions, the infant mortality rate is in a steep decline. The infant mortality statistics in Pakistan are the following: N/A. Relevant data is the budget of healthcare, which is in this country’s case is 2.6% of GDP (2014).
Economic data of Pakistan
Suppose we would like to describe a country. We also have to mention its economy; Decades of internal political disputes and low foreign investment levels have led to slow growth and underdevelopment in Pakistan. Pakistan has a large English-speaking population. Nevertheless, a challenging security environment, electricity shortages. In 2013, Pakistan embarked on a $6.3 billion IMF Extended Fund Facility, which focused on reducing energy shortages, stabilizing public finances, increasing revenue collection, and improving its balance of payments position. The program concluded in SeptePakistan must continue to address several longstanding issues, including expanding investment in education and healthcare, adapting to the effects of climate change and natural disasters, improving the country’s business environment, reducing dependence. To boost development, Pakistan and China are implementing the “China-Pakistan Economic Corridor,” a $46 billion investment program targeted towards the energy sector and other infrastructure projects that Islamabad and Beijing had agreed on i.
GDP is a prominent figure, as all the relevant calculations and statistics are based on it. GDP in Pakistan is $271.1 billion (2015 estimate).
Another important indicator is the rate of GDP growth, which in Pakistan is 4.7% (2016 estimate), 4% (2015 estimate) 4.1% (2014 estimate).
These statistics affect the world economy; remember, in 2015, the Chinese real GDP growth rate was worse than expected; The world markets fall, and the Chinese stock exchange was temporarily suspended.
A further major factor of a country’s economy, the GDP per capita. In Pakistan this is $5,100 (2016 estimate) $5,000 (2015 estimate) $4,900 (2014 estimate).
In the economy, the Trinity is in common places, such as agriculture, industry, and services.

According to the WHO rating regarding contagious diseases in Pakistan, the degree of risk: high food or waterborne diseases: bacterial diarrhea, hepatitis A and E, and typhoid fever vectorborne diseases: dengue fever and malaria. Animal contact disease: rabies, (2016).
However, HIV is not curable but maintainable. Let’s do not forget when the disease surfaced; it was a world threatening condition. Unfortunately, in some countries, it is still very high the number of infected patients and fatalities due to the disease.
In Pakistan, the number of HIV/AIDS deaths: N/A.
Regarding tourism obesity, not an important issue, but we have to mention health statistics, as it is the plague of the 20th and the 21st century. The rate of obese adults in Pakistan is 4.8% (2014).
What are the natural hazards in Pakistan? Is there any?
The most known natural risk in Pakistan is frequent earthquakes, occasionally severe, especially in north and west; flooding along the Indus after heavy rains (July and August).
More interesting facts about Pakistan
A few words about the past, as every country and society, are connected to its history; The Indus Valley civilization, one of the oldest in the world and dating back at least 5,000 years, spread over much of Pakistan’s current. During the second millennium B.C., remnants of this culture fused with the migrating Indo-Aryan peoples. The area underwent successive invasions in subsequent centuries from the Persians, Greeks, Scythians, Arabs (who brought Islam), Afghans, and Turks. The Mughal Empire flourished in the 16th and 17th centuries; the British dominated the region in the 18th century. The separation in 1947 of British India into the Muslim state of Pakistan (with West and East sections) and mostly Hindu India was never satisfactorily resolved, and India and Pakistan fought two wars and a limited conflict – in 1947-48, 1965, and 1999 respectively – over the disputed Kashmir territory. A third war between these countries in 1971 – in which India capitalized on Islamabad’s marginalization of Bengalis in Pakistani politics – resulted in East Pakistan becoming the separate nation of Bangladesh.
In response to Indian nuclear weapons testing, Pakistan conducted its own tests in mid-1998. India-Pakistan relations improved in the mid-2000s but have been rocky since the November 2008 Mumbai attacks and have been further strained by attacks in India by militants suspected of being backed by Pakistan. Nawaz SHARIF took office as prime minister in 2013, marking the first time in Pakistani history that a democratically elected government completed a full term and transitioned to a successive democratically elected government. Following a series of bomb and suicide attacks by the Tehrik-e Pakistan Taliban (TTP) begun in 2007, the Pakistan Government and TTP representatives agreed to a cease-fire in early 2014. However, by mid-year 2014, the talks collapsed, and the TTP resumed attack plotting against Pakistani targets.
In every nation’s memory, some cornerstones placed the country on the timeline of history. The date of declaration of independence of Pakistan: 14 August 1947 (from British India).
The flag and other symbols of Pakistan
The colors, symbols, and animals on the flag usually have a historical background or an important milestone or memory of the nation.
This case is not an exception either; green with a vertical white band (symbolizing the role of religious minorities) on the hoist side; a large white crescent and star are centered in the green field; the crescent, star, and color green are traditional symbols of Islam.
Apart from the flag, the symbol of national unity is the national anthem. The anthem’s primary purpose is to share the nation’s core values, endeavors, and patriotic feelings.
National symbols of Pakistan: star and crescent, jasmine; national colors: green, white.
Constitution of Pakistan
The existence of the nation is based on the constitution. Some constitutions knew worldwide, like the U.S. Constitution that was accepted on the 17th of September 1787, in Philadelphia, the United States of America’s Constitution.

What is the legal system of Pakistan?
Most of the time, the legal system of a country is the focus of lawyers. It is a common fact that there are two main approaches in the world, “the law in books” and “the law in action.”
In the Anglo-Saxon world, the practice is the “law in action,” while in the rest of the world, the law is based on Roman law, the “law in books.”
The legal system of Pakistan is a common law system with Islamic law influence.
It was Aristotle who founded the Theory of 3 separations of powers. In his view, these are the council of public affairs, the magistrates, and the justice system. The age of enlightenment was the time when terminologies have defined the way we still use them. In most democratic countries, the three authorities separated from each other. In dictatorships, the rules usually interweaved in one hand.
About the legislative branch of Pakistan, we can highlight the following structures bicameral Parliament or Majlis-e-Shoora consists of the Senate (104 seats; members indirectly elected by the four provincial assemblies and the territories’ representatives by proportional representation vote; members serve 6-year terms with one-half of the membership renewed every three years) and the National Assembly (342 seats; 272 members directly elected in single-seat constituencies by simple majority vote and 70 members – 60 women and ten non-Muslims – directly elected by proportional representation vote; all members serve 5-year terms).
About the unemployment rate, labor force, and poverty line in Pakistan
One of the major problems of the 21st-century economy is unemployment. Governments are struggling to maintain a low level of the unemployment rate. Still, as a result of automation, the cheap 3rd world labor, and the outsourcing of workflow, these attempts fail. In Pakistan, the labor force is 65.1 million (2016 estimate). Please bear in mind that the population in Pakistan is total: 53.9 deaths / 1,000 live births; male: 57 deaths / 1,000 live births, female: 50.6 deaths / 1,000 live births (2016 estimate) – as we already mentioned above.

In Pakistan, the households’ income and consumption compared to the entire population: lowest 10%: 4.2% highest 10%: 25.6% (FY2011).
Another widely used indicator is the so-called GINI index, which measures the inequalities of statistical dispersion, but is mainly used for measuring the sharing of income and fortune.
The GINI index was named after its founder Corrado Gini, an Italian economist. Gini index has grades between 0-1, but often it is used on a percentage basis. It is 0 if the examined criteria territorial distribution is equal. It is one of the criteria concentrated on the territory. In Pakistan, the GINI index is .29,6 (2011).
The states usually set up a poverty line, which is more or less, is a subjective measure. It varies by country; its base is often the minimum pension, the incomes of the most deficient 20 percent, the X percent of income per capita Etc.
In Pakistan, the poverty line people are the lowest 10%: 4.2% highest 10%: 25.6% (FY2011).

Renewable energies used in Pakistan
To suppress the pollution of the environment, renewable energies have to replace the fossil energy. The more the proportion of renewable energies in a country means more effort against pollution. Pakistan, the indicator of how much of the country’s produced energy is coming from the hydroelectric source, is 29.2% of total installed capacity (FY2014 estimate).
To indicate how much another renewable energy produced is 0.4% of total installed capacity (FY2014 estimate).
Telecommunication data of Pakistan, calling code
To maintain the economy, the development of a reliable and modern telecommunications infrastructure is crucial. We can say the following about Pakistan; the telecommunications infrastructure is improving, with investments in mobile-cellular networks increasing, but fixed-line subscriptions declining; the system consists of a microwave radio relay, coaxial cable, fiber-optic cable, cellular, and satellite network. Domestic: mobile-cellular subscribership has skyrocketed; more than 90% of Pakistanis live within areas that have cell phone coverage; fiber-optic networks are being constructed throughout the country to increase broadband access, though broadband penetration in Painternational: country code – 92; landing point for the SEA-ME-WE-3 and SEA-ME-WE-4 submarine cable systems that provide links to Asia, the Middle East, and Europe; satellite earth stations – 3 Intelsat (1 the Atlantic Ocean and 2 Indian Ocean); 3 operational international (2015).
Transport infrastructure in Pakistan
In the 21st century, we often say that the world has become small and there are no distances anymore. With widespread air travel when (sometimes) there are no visa restrictions, it is easy to reach other countries, but if the distance is not too long, we can also use railway or water transportation.
The number of airports in Pakistan: 151 (2013), and the number of heliports: 23 (2013).
The total length of the roadways in Pakistan: 263,942 km, paved: 185,063 km (includes 708 km of expressways), unpaved: 78,879 km (2014).
