Demographic transition refers to a particular transition of birth and death rates from high values to the low values as the country develops and progresses ahead. Generally it is expressed as a characteristic of the country as develop from a pre-industrial primitive economy to the industrialized economy.

American Demographer Warren Thompson(1887-1973) has devised a demographic model in which the countries are staged as per the demographic transition statistics. Most of the developing countries are staged in stage 2 or 3, while the developed countries are staged in stage 3 or 4.

Demographic transition are presently applied to the countries which do have exhaustive information on the birth and death rates and hence the models are not applicable to the countries with very low economy rates(they do not have statistics) (Chesnais,1992)(Wells,1975).
