The Demographic Transition
Model
OBJECTIVES
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
1.
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?
Strengths
Your
opinion
Weaknesses
Your
opinion
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 Thailand’s
population change from
the graph on page 157
Explain the changes
Case studies
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?

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!
