Haiti is one of the most densely populated countries in the world.Until the 1970s, over 80 percent of the population resided in rural areas, and today, over 60 percent continue to live in provincial villages, hamlets, and homesteads scattered across the rural landscape.A tectonic fault line runs through the country, causing occasional and sometimes devastating earthquakes.The island is also located within the Caribbean hurricane belt. The population has grown steadily from 431,140 at independence in 1804 to the estimate of 6.9 million to 7.2 million in 2000.The neighboring islands include Cuba, Jamaica, and Puerto Rico.Three-quarters of the terrain is mountainous; the highest peak is the Morne de Selle. The mountains are calcareous rather than volcanic and give way to widely varying microclimatic and soil conditions. Some of the women profiles you see here might be scams to collect money.
