Stage 1- Pre industrisation- Birth and death rates are high as there's little healthcare and poor sanitation.

Stage 2-  Early Industriastion -death rates decrease due to better healthcare, vaccines and better sanitation. birth rates remain high.

Stage 3- Late Industrisation- birth rates start to decrease due to women being better educated and death rates continue to steadily decrease

Stage 4- Developed Country - Birth and Death rates are low

Stage 5- Declining population - Birth rates are lower than deathy rates leading to Natural decrease.

Hope this helps!!!! :)
