Demographic Transition refers to the transition in birth and death rates

Demographers recognize four phases of demographic transition.

In the first phase improved health care technologies and improved access to health care

result in reduction in mortality rates but, birth rate continues to be high and therefore population growth occurs.

In the second there is reduction in birth rate but the reduction in death rate is higher than

reduction in birth rate, as a result population increases.

In the third phase, birth rates and death rates are both low; however population growth continues because of a large number of individuals in the reproductive age group.

In the fourth phase population level stabilizes with number of births and deaths being low and equal.

India is currently in the third phase of demographic transition
