C: Demography and Health: Population Theorys
I took this course several years ago and did well on the papers but failed to do the threaded discussions. Long story short, it brought my grade down. My luck, they changed teachers and it went from a 1-2 page paper to a 3-8 page paper and this one wants APA ref. (Ill find mine) Ill attach the orginal paper. Please add Filler, fluff and new parts this teacher may of added”.
1. The demographic transition theory identifies a three stage-model for population growth. Provide an example of at least one country (excluding the U.S.) going through each of these phases. Provide supporting evidence, which includes discussion on the trends in fertility, mortality, and migration for these countries.
2. Describe the trends in fertility, mortality, migration, and urbanization in the U.S. during the past century. Does the demographic transition theory support these trends? Why or why not?
3. Based on your review of the demographic trends and population theories, what is your projection of demographic trends for the U.S. population in 2040? What implications does this have for public health? Provide support for your perspective.
