Birth rate on the model starts high and fluctuating. On average the birth rate is around
per 1000. The birth rate stays high then starts to descend in the stage because of advances in and increased materialism. It decreases rapidly until the low fluctuating stage where it fluctuates again.
The death rate also starts
and fluctuating. It is also around per 1000 on average. Death rate starts to decline in the stage and evens out and stabilises in the late expanding stage.
In the
stage because both the birth rates and death rates are high and fluctuating the total population does not change much. In the Early expanding and late expanding stages because birth rates are above death rates the population increases rapidly.
Places at the high stationary stage include the
and the Amazon Basin.
Places at the early expanding stage include the UK 1760 to 1870 and
Places at the late expanding stage include the
and Cuba.
Places at the low fluctuating stage include the UK after 1950 and
