Australia currently sits in ‘Stage 4’.
As such, Stage 3 is often viewed as a marker of significant development. Examples of Stage 3 countries are Botswana, Colombia, India, Jamaica, Kenya, Mexico, South Africa, and the United Arab Emirates, just to name a few.
Stage 1: This is a state of high birth and death rates culminating in low population growth overall. Stage 2: With a consistently high birth rate and decreasing death rate, population growth surges. Stage 3: As the birth rate falls and the death rate remains low, the population continues to increase.
Possible examples of Stage 5 countries are Croatia, Estonia, Germany, Greece, Japan, Portugal and Ukraine. According to the DTM each of these countries should have negative population growth but this has not necessarily been the case.
Demography can be defined as the study of population, typically focused on five aspects: (1) size, (2) geographic distribution, (3) composition, (4) the components of change (births, deaths, migration), and (5) the determinants and consequences of population change (Swanson and Stephan, 2004, p.
Still, there are a number of countries that remain in Stage 2 of the Demographic Transition for a variety of social and economic reasons, including much of Sub-Saharan Africa, Guatemala, Nauru, Palestine, Yemen and Afghanistan.
In Stage 4 of the Demographic Transition Model (DTM), birth rates and death rates are both low, stabilizing total population growth. That being said, Stage 4 of the DTM is viewed as an ideal placement for a country because total population growth is gradual.
Demographic Transition. Due to the low birth rate and the low death rate, it seems that Australia is in Stage 4 of the Demographic Transition Model.
61.4% of annual growth was due to natural increase, and 38.6% was due to net overseas migration. In the year ending 30 September 2020, Australia’s population grew by 220,500 people (0.9%).
Geography Stage 2 – places are similar and different. 4 weeks – 90 minutes a week Key inquiry questions How and why are places similar and different? How can people use places and environments more sustainably?
Both the birth and death rate start declining in 1975, showing that the process of Urbanization was complete around 1975. Being a Stage 4 state Australia should be modernized. The Population Pyramid shows that Australia has a stable population.
