The Demographic Transition Model
In which stage of the Demographic Transition Model would you put the following statements:
- Politicians worry more about the ’oldies’ vote.
- A worldwide immunization programme eradicates a disease responsible for the death of millions.
- Governments introduce tax incentives for families who have more than two children.
- The immigration of skilled workers and their families is encouraged.
- Grandparents are rare.
There is an excellent 'Living Graph' exercise about the Demographic Transition Model in Thinking Through Geography.
