In certain countries people are blessed with abundance of physicians, doctors, and professional specialists that are constantly present in times of need. Often these citizens take for granted the unlimited availability offered to them upon the appearance of any illness, pain, or worry that could present a harmful dissatisfaction. The accessibility of these professionals is directly related to the likelihood and implementation of citizens attending a tertiary school. Therefore, by increasing the awareness and availability of tertiary schools, a country will ultimately benefit in a healthier and longer-living society which will in return reap rewards in other aspects of the culture. Tertiary school 1 enrollment varies between each region and nation-state throughout the world. The countries with a higher tertiary school enrollment rate will evidently see a spike in the literacy rate. These well educated students will then graduate and conform into physicians, thereby increasing a country’s amount of physicians to every 1000 people rate. With enlarged totals of these doctors, a country is sure to experience a rise in the life expectancy at birth rate. Tertiary school is directly related to a country’s life expectancy rate. This is valid information presented in various articles and graphs. The first set of geographical trends that relate in correspondence to each other are the literacy rate and tertiary school enrollment. There exists a repeating pattern of an increased literacy rate as the number of applicants to a tertiary school enlarges. According to Mohammod Irfan, “It is the end product in the chain of formal education, or the graduates, who are expected to contribute most in the labor productivity.” 2 He presents valid information to support this claim with a statistical graph representing the comparison of infant mortality per country to the education level of the infants’ mothers. The women surveyed included mothers from Mali, 1 Primary school refers to an elementary education, which is then followed by secondary school or a high school education, leading to tertiary school, which is a college education. 2 Quote from Mohammod Irfan’s “Global Trends on Education.”

Bolivia, Nepal, Zambia, and Ghana; these nations represent a geographical trend linked by the location of a regional basis in Africa. Being that secondary schooling was the highest level of education offered to these women, those who enrolled in secondary school resulted in the lowest infancy mortalities than any other women who were either uneducated or only taught in primary school. It is obvious that with the extra knowledge these women gained they were more capable of providing for their babies, which will thereby result in a decreased mortality rate of the country. Also, there exists palpable research that the more students enrolled into a tertiary school
