The Demographic Transition Model attempts to show how population changes as a country develops.
The model is divided into four stages.
The demographic transition model
Birth rate and death rate are high – low natural increase – low total population
Birth rate is high – death rate is falling – high natural increase (population growth)
Falling birth rate – low death rate – high natural increase (population growth)
Birth rate and death rate is low – low natural increase – high total population
The Demographic Transition Model does not take into account migration.
