Migration

The total population of an area is the balance between 2 forces of change: natural increase and migration

Natural increase is the balance between birth rates and death rates

Reasons l.jpg

Reasons

What do you think the reasons are for the changes at each stage?


Reasons for stage 1 high fluctuating l.jpg

Reasons for Stage 1High Fluctuating

  • Little access to birth control

  • Many children die in infancy so parents have more to compensate

  • Children are needed to work on the land

  • Some religions encourage large families

  • Death rates are high due to disease, famine, poor diet, poor hygiene, little medical science

Reasons for stage 2 early expanding l.jpg

Reasons for Stage 2Early Expanding

Stage 2

  • Improvements in medical care

  • Improvements in sanitation and water supply

  • Quality and quantity of food produced improves

  • Transport and communications improve movements of food and medical supplies

  • Decrease in infant mortality

Reasons for stage 3 late expanding l.jpg

Reasons for Stage 3Late Expanding

  • Increased access to contraception

  • Lower infant mortality rates so less need for bigger families

  • Industrialisation and mechanisation means fewer labourers required

  • As wealth increases, desire for material possessions takes over the desire for large families

  • Equality of women means they can follow a career rather than just staying at home

Reasons for stage 4 low fluctuating l.jpg

Reasons for Stage 4Low Fluctuating

Stage 4

  • Rates fluctuate with ‘baby booms’ and epidemics of illnesses and diseases

  • Reasons for Stage 4 have improved and it stabilises

Stage 5: Declining (or Depleting) Population


Limitations l.jpg

Limitations

What limitations do you think there could be with the model?

  • It does not include the influences of migration

  • It assumes that all countries will go through the same pattern

  • There is no time scale

  • Reasons for birth rates and death rates are very different in different countries

  • And finally, is there a stage 5?
