look like?
Find a 5 stage picture of the demographic
transition model on the internet. Put this in the
centre of a word document.
Using the IDB website locate population
pyramids for China, Zimbabwe, the UK and
Germany, plus one other, which have a
population pyramid similar to each model stage
diagram on page 165. Add these around the
DTM you have found. Use data for THIS YEAR
Research each of those countries to describe
and explain the shape of the pyramid on the
same document

lower life expectancy, higher infant mortality and death rates, lower
population and growth rates, and changes in the distribution of
population by age and sex than would otherwise be expected
