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?

A

As the country gets more urbanized, people migrate from the cities to rural areas, thus making the population shrink.

B

The population of the country declines because the birth rate falls much faster than the death rate in Stage two.

C

The population of the country stabilizes because the birth and death rates remain similar throughout.

D

The population grows because deaths decline before births, causing a population expansion.

E

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.
