1 Definition
1.1 Suggests that all countries pass through similar DT stages or will do given time

2 Advantages
2.1 Gives us a good generalised picture of population change over time
2.2 Gives us a picture for the future
2.3 Easy to compare different countries and their state of development
3 Disadvantages
3.1 Based on European countries (not LEDCs)
3.2 Original model didn't include stage 5
3.3 Doesn't include migration, major disasters, HIV or government polies
3.4 Doesn't give a timeline for how long each stage might take
4 Stages
4.1 Stage 1
4.1.1 High stationary or pre-transition phase
4.1.2 High death rates due to disease Consequently high birth rates to increase chances of survival
4.2 Stage 2
4.2.1 Early expanding or early transition phase
4.2.2 Death rate begins to decline with better living standards
4.2.3 Birth rate remains high as children = labour
4.2.4 Massive population growth
4.3 Stage 3
4.3.1 Late expanding or mid-transition phase
4.3.2 Improved technology in agriculture and industry, better education and birth-control
4.3.3 Decline in birth and death rate
4.4 Stage 4
4.4.1 Low stationary or late transition phase
4.4.2 Low levels of fertility and mortality
4.4.3 Minimal growth
4.5 Stage 5
