|the amoutnt of deaths per 1000 people living. an indicater of how good the medical technology is

|the number of farmers per amount of arable land
|natural increase rate (NIR)
|the percentage by wich the population increases by each year

|infant mortality rate (IMR)
|the amount of deaths for infants under a year of age per 1000 people
|a branch of medical science concerned with diseases that affect large amounts of people
|the change in a population from a high CDR, CBR and a low NIR to a low CDR, CBR, and low NIR
|a complete enumeration of a populatioin
|a portion of earth that is permenently settled by humans
|the time when humans first domesticated plants and animals and stopped hunting and gathering
|the study of populatioin characteristics
|the time when major improvements were made to industrial technology
|zero population growth
|the CBR equals the CDR near 0 and the NIR is 0% or close to it
|the amount of males for every 1000 females
|total firtility rate (TFR)
|the average number of kids a woman will have while she can
|the number of people per arable land

|the country has more pressure on it to provide its population with recourses
|why is the agricultural density lower in MDC rather than LDC?
|the MDC has better technology so less farmers are needed to farm
|describe what happens on the demographic transition model in each of the 4 stages.
|in stage 1 the CBR and CDR are high and the NIR is low. in stage 2, CDR drops, NIR rises and CBR is high. in stage 3 CBR drops and NIR decreases. instage 4 CBR and NIR are low and NIR is very low or non existent
