Replacement level fertility the number of children a couple must have to replace themselves
Average fertility rate average number of children per woman
Pre-industrial stage harsh living conditions, birth & death rates high, population grows slowly, infant mortality high
Transitional stage death rate lower due to better health care, birth rate still high so population grows fast
Industrial stage decline in birth rate, population growth slows
Post-industrial stage low birth & death rates, population stabilized or decreases
