What is the republic of congo's demographic transition?

The Democratic Republic of the Congo could be considered to be in Stage 2 of the Demographic Transition Model. This is a LEDC country. This means that it is a Less Economically Developed Country. There are many things for this country to develop better and be a better place.

There are many problems in Democratic Republic of Congo like death by non-violent causes such as malaria, diarrhea, pneumonia and malnutrition.

Apart from Democratic Republic of the Congo, countries that remain in stage two, with its rapid population growth, risk being overwhelmed by land hunger, water shortages, disease, civil conflict, and other adverse effects of prolonged rapid population growth include: Yemen, Ethiopia, Somalia and Afghanistan.

Within the next two decades or so, most of the countries in stage two will either have made it into stage three or fallen back to stage one. What is not clear is exactly what combination of events and forces will push countries backward demographically. - See more at Earth-policy.org.

The Demographic Transition Model (DTM) is based on historical population trends of two demographic characteristics – birth rate and death rate – to suggest that a country’s total population growth rate cycles through stages as that country develops economically. Each stage is characterized by a specific relationship between birth rate (number of annual births per one thousand people) and death rate (number of annual deaths per one thousand people).
