- In this activity, using the data spread sheet hyperlinked below these instructions, you will identify examples of countries in Stage 2, Stage 3 and Stage 4 of the Demographic Transition Model. You will be picking countries from top 20 most populated nations. You will use the world averages for baseline information. The world average for birth rate and death rate are BR = 20 and DR = 8.
- A Stage 2 country has a high birth rate and a high death rate.
Stage 2 example: Mali (BR = 45, DR = 15)
- A Stage 3 country has an average birth rate and a lower than average death rate.
Stage 3 example: Nicaragua (BR = 23, DR = 5)
- A Stage 4 country has a lower birth rate and an near average death rate.
Stage 4 example: Monaco (BR = 7, DR = 7)
