Demographic Transition The process by which population growth changed in the developed world is known as the demographic transition. 4 stages of the demographic transition 1. Stage 1: High birth rates and high death rates leading to slow or little population increase. 2. Stage 2: Begins with a fall in the death rates and is characterized by death rates falling faster than birth rates. This causes population to increase rapidly. 3. Stage 3: Begins with a decline in birth rates and is a period where both birth rates and death rates are both low and population growth stabilizes to a low rate again. 4. Stage 4: A few countries have reached this stage which is one where population growth is zero or declining because birth rates are falling faster than death rates.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
