- Stage 3: Late expanding – most low-income countries.
- Stage 4: Low fluctuating – most middle and high-income countries.

Population Pyramid
- Population pyramid is a graph that can be used to indicate the growth or decline of fertility, mortality and migration by each age. It also showed the life expectancy.
- On the x-axis, there is number of population. The 0 is in the middle that starts to increase on both left and right side.
- On the y-axis, the man is on the left and the woman is on the right. In the middle, there is a column of ages starts small on the bottom to big on the top.

(Developing nation)
- Growth rate are slow
- High birth rate
- Short life …show more content…
