Population Projections only work if the governmental structure and cultural customs remain the same
Population Pyramids of Less Developed Countries have a wide base because the majority of the population is under the age of 15.
Dependancy Ratio says that those ages 0-14 and over 65 depend on the workforce for support
Demographic Momentum is a continued population increase as a result of a large segment of the population being young
Demographic Momentum countries in stage two have it
Negative Growth when the country begins to lose population (stage 4)
Population Pyramids do not only have to be used on a national scale, but can be used to describe cities or even neighborhoods
