Explanation: stage 3. The reasoning is that the birth rates are still in the process of decreasing and the death rates are very low. Once the birth rates further decrease and experience low NRI, then it is safe to say that Vietnam is in stage 4. Vietnam is not there yet, but very close. 6. Population pyramid Analysis:Unlike common population pyramids in decades ago with triangle form and large bottom, shape of Vietnam’s population pyramids in recent years has marginally transformed to have narrower bottom and expand in the center which represents the size of the labor force in the country. Proportion of people between 15- 64 years old and over-65 years old in Vietnam’s total population has rapidly increased by 12.4 (56.1% to 68.5%) and 2.1 (4.7% to 6.8%) respectively for 20 years from 1989 to 2010 Dependency ratio: 42.5 Sex ratio: 1 male(s)/female 7.

    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.
