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.
