Solution

- In the stage 1 both birth rates and death rates are high. The difference between the two is very less and therefore, the population is stable.
- In stage 1 birth rates are high due to limited educational opportunities, people feel having many children is good. Therefore, families are big.
- In stage 1, due to the lack of sanitation facilities, medical facilities, the spread of contagious diseases, malnutrition, etc., the death rate is high.
- In stage 5 birth rates and death rates are very low. Birth rates are almost equal to death rates.
- As a result, the population growth is almost minimal or very low or even negative in the case of some countries.
- In stage 5, the death rate is low because of improved medical facilities, eradication of contagious diseases, and a healthy environment.
- In stage 5, due to an increase in awareness among the people, the birth rate is low.
