7. Norway is 12 people per KM, Italy is 196.1 /KM Norway is lower by far – reason Protestant with 82.7 % (more practice of bith control – family size is 1.4 children
http://www.demographic-research.org/volumes/vol10/10/10-10.pdf
Italy – Catholics make up for the 87.8% – have in the past had more children on average – generally family size in urban areas is 1.4 however in rural areas it is 4.0
http://www.unece.org/pau/_docs/pau/1998/PAU_1998_RPM_CntrReprtITA.pdf

– Italy has a better climate – maybe less people emigrate to another country – or perhaps more people who have emigrated return home when they are ready to retire (cheaper to purchase land/homes/to live)
