Why do you think there is a difference in population growth between developed and developing countries? What are some social and economic changes this difference has caused in Europe and the United States? What are some measures that developed countries are taking or could take to stabilize and increase populations?
Developing countries have a more population growth rate compared to developed countries because they have higher mortality rates and less social programs. Developed countries have less population growth because both parents working hence less time for kids. Developing countries have higher rate of natural increase. Death rates have fallen faster than birth rates; birth rates are significantly higher than in developed countries, whereas death rates are only somewhat higher than in developed countries. Tradition, lack of contraception, poverty and lack of education are the main causes
