Not all countries have moved through all four phases of the demographic transition. You are a consultant for a developing country that is not yet in phase IV of demographic transition.
The following rubric will be used for grading:
|5%||Define demographic transition.|
|20%||Describe the 4 phases of demographic transition, including if the population is stable, growing, or declining in each.|
|20%||According to demographers, what factors lead to a decline in the crude birth rate (CBR) and crude death rate (CDR) in the epidemiologic and fertility phases of the demographic transition??|
|25%||Briefly describe three living conditions in developed countries that have reached phase IV, and contrast them with these conditions or impacts in developing countries that remain in earlier phases.
Note: When comparing and contrasting, include details for each of the entities being compared and contrasted. For example, if comparing availability of clean water in a developed country, contrast availability of clean water in a developing country.
|25%||Assuming that the Demographic Transition Phase IV is a goal for developing countries, what two programs or initiatives would you suggest to assist them in progressing toward this goal?|
|5%||Include a Title Page, in-text citations, and a list of references in accordance with APA. Add an introduction that prepares for the elements to be presented and a conclusion that highlights major points.|
