Social conditions

Compared to other developing countries, the health situation is quite good and the average life expectancy is relatively high, 76 years. Despite high birth rates and increasing life expectancy, the population is declining. Emigration is extensive. The causes are, above all, the undeveloped business community combined with natural disasters and political unrest. Unemployment is significant, up to one fifth of the population, and poverty is widespread. As a result of economic austerity programs and cuts in the public sector, the number of poor people doubled during the 1990s and according to World Bank data, more than 30 percent of the population lives in poverty in the mid-1990s.
