Demographic Transition Model


Demographic transition Model

The demographic transition model shows the population change over time.

Population change: The population of an area is never static. It is dynamic and is always changing - a population can change naturally due to births and deaths or artifically by migration.

5 stages of the DTM

As a country passes throught the demographical transition model, the population rises. Most LEDCs are at stage 2 or 3 (with a growing population and a high nature increase). Most MEDCs are now at Stage 4 of the model and some such as Germany have entered Stage 5. 

LEDC: Less Economically Developed Country - ususally a poorer country found in South America, Asia or Africa.

MEDC: More Economically Developed Country - usually a rich country found in Western Europe or North America.
