Demographic gap

Demographic cycle
  • Demographic gap is the difference between birth rate and death rate that develops when a country undergoes demographic transition
  • In a demographic cycle, as the country develops and the living conditions improve, there is first a decrease in the death rate in the population
  • But the birth rate continues to remain at a high level
  • This results in a demographic gap and a resultant increase in the total size of population
  • The demographic gap is maintained till the birth rate and death rates become equal and the population size becomes stable
