Demographic Transitions

Demographic Transitions

Paper instructions:

Demographic transition involves the following five stages:

Stage 1 High birth rate, high death rate, low population size

Stage 2

High birth rate, decreasing death rate, increasing population size

Stage 3 Decreasing birth rate, decreasing death rate, increasing population size

Stage 4 Low birth rate, low death rate, high population size

Stage 5 Low birth rate, low death rate, population size decreasing

It should be noted that stage 5 is controversial, and it is sometimes not considered to be a stage. This is partially because so few countries are at this stage.

Environmental impact of this transition.
