  • Demographic Transition Model
    • Stage 1
      • High Birth Rate
        • No birth control
      • High Death Rate
        • Little medicine
      • Remote rainforest areas of the Amazon and Indonesia
      • UK was here before 1760
      • Falling death rate is the key factor that indicates the change from stage 1 to stage 2
        • Stage 2
          • High birth rate
            • Children are needed to work
            • Fewer mothers  die in childbirth so they go on to have more children
          • Rapidly falling death rate
            • Medicine and hygiene improving
          • Rapid population growth
          • UK was here from 1760
          • Falling birth rate is the key factor that indicates the change from stage 2 to stage 3
            • Stage 3
              • Rapidly falling birth rate
                • Availability to birth control
                • Expensive to have a child
                • Children go to school so they cant work
              • Continually falling death rate but slowly
              • Rapid population growth at first, then slowing
              • UK was here from 1880
              • e.g. Brazil
              • Stationary population growth is the key factor that indicates the change from stage 3 to stage 4
                • Stage 4
                  • Low birth rate
                    • People are more likely to have children when the economy is good
                  • Low death rate
                  • Stable population
                  • Slow population growth
                  • UK and USA is here
                  • Declining population is the key factor that indicates the change from stage 4 to stage 5
                    • Stage 5
                      • Low birth rate- falling below death rate
                        • Emancipation of women- they have higher jobs
                      • Low death rate
                      • Declining population
                      • Aging population
          • e.g. Afghanistan
      • Fluctuating population
    • Stage 2
      • High birth rate
        • Children are needed to work
        • Fewer mothers  die in childbirth so they go on to have more children
      • Rapidly falling death rate
        • Medicine and hygiene improving
      • Rapid population growth
      • UK was here from 1760
