  • Natural increase - cause of urbanisation
    • When the birth rate is higher than the death rate
    • High proportion of young adults (18-25) = few older ppl. so lower death rate
    • Healthcare improvements in urban areas (normally LICs + NEEs)  = lower death rate
      • Therefore natural increase normally higher in LICs + NEEs
