Question 2 of 2

Medal-premium 1

What are the disadvantages ?

Select one or more of the following:

  • The model assumed that in time all countries would pass through the same stages however it has now become unlikely that Africa will go through the industrial stage ever.

  • It's not very accurate

  • The model assumed that the fall in death rate in stage 2 was the consequence of industrialisation. Initially the death rate in many British cities rose due to the insanitary conditions and only began to fall with the advances in medicine .

  • It's oldfashioned

  • It's not good at predicting

  • In many counties the fall in birth rate in stage 3 countries has been less rapid than the model suggests due to religious and political opposition e.g one child policy.

  • Not enough people use it.

  • a population decline has been caused by several of the most economically developed countries falling below death rates e.g Germany so the model had to have a fifth stage added.

  • The time scale of the model is being squashed e.g Asia as they develop at much faster rates than in the industrialised countries
