As a country progresses through demographic transition, what generally happens to the overall population of that country as it travels from Stage One to Stage Four?
As the country gets more urbanized, people migrate from the cities to rural areas, thus making the population shrink.
The population of the country declines because the birth rate falls much faster than the death rate in Stage two.
The population of the country stabilizes because the birth and death rates remain similar throughout.
The population grows because deaths decline before births, causing a population expansion.
The overall population remains unchanged. This happens because in Stage one, both birth and death rates are similarly high. While in Stage 4 the birth and death rates are similarly low.
