It might surprise you to know that the largest countries, like China and Russia, have the fewest number of vehicles per 100 people. These countries, as well as Turkey, Iran, Mexico, Brazil, most of South America and parts of Africa, have only 1 to 150 cars per 100 people.

“Inflation rate” is an economic term that refers to changes in a price index. The inflation of a country is the rate of price increase over a set period of time. Most inflation figures are given for the yearly increase in the price index. Inflation affects the purchasing power of the population and affects the economy of a country in countless ways. With a rising inflation rate, a currency unit will purchase fewer goods, necessitating a rise in salaries and other economic changes.
Inflation may seem like a constant issue, but different parts of the world have very different inflation rates. Some countries have double-digit rates of inflation, or even higher rates. Other countries have little to no inflation.
