Presentation for the World Population Council


According to a report by United Nations, the fertility rate has dropped below three children per woman for the first time in the developing countries. World population rate will continue to grow, albeit slowly, and nearly all the growth will take place in the developing countries. Every country, be it developed or developing, has at some time or the other, experienced “demographic transition” from high to low levels of fertility and mortality. The development of a country depends on various factors like the culture, the economic development and the social mores. Various technological and social changes brought about a steep decline in the fertility rates in the developed nations. Developed countries have completed the demographic transition while in the developing countries the birth rate and the death rate are falling at varying rates. Despite this, it remains significantly high when compared to the developed nations.
Let's make that grade!
