OBJECTIVES 1. TO REVIEW WHAT THE DEMOGRAPHIC TRANSITION MODEL IS AND WHAT IT SHOWS 2. TO EVALUATE THE DTM 3. TO JUDGE THE APPLICABILITY OF THE DTM TO THE UK AND THAILAND The Demographic Transition Model
Add the locations of China, UK and Zimbabwe to the map
The Demographic Transition Model (seen it before!) Describe and explain the patterns on the graph, include examples of places in your work
Read pages 162 and 163 of your course textbook What are the strengths and weaknesses of the model? To what extent do you agree with those strengths and weaknesses? StrengthsYour opinion Weaknesses Your opinion
Case studies The UK Add the information from pages 155 and 156 of Barker, Redfearn and Skinner to the Demographic Transition model for the UK How well does the UK fit the Demographic Transition model? Thailand Describe Thailands population change from the graph on page 157 Explain the changes
How do our case studies fit in? Add the data to a copy of the DTM – which stage of the DTM are these countries in and why? Find out more by researching them Birth RateDeath rate Natural Change per 1000 China147.06 UK10.6510.02 Zimbabwe31.4916.19 Germany8.1810.9
How can we explain this? Ghana death rate - 9.39 deaths/1,000 population (2008 est.) UK death rate - 10.05 deaths/1,000 population (2008 est.)
Opinion line review The demographic transition model is useful The demographic transition model is applicable to all countries The demographic transition model has more strengths than weaknesses The demographic transition model rocks!
