Map of italy pisa for Poverty is more prominent in large families, especially families with a large number of children. The reason for this is described in terms of the dependency ratio, the number of children under 15 per employed adult. The large dependency ratio in large families contributes to their low per-capita income and poverty. Typically, poverty is more of an urban problem in industrial countries and a rural problem in developing countries. In industrial countries, the urban poor are often employed in the informal sector as street vendors or in similar occupations. The rural poor, on the other hand, are typically landless peasants at work for large landowners. In both cases, the poor have a lower educational attainment and hence a lower level of human capital.
