Most of the reasons are because in itself it is a country that will not expand. Being in an area which is extremely vulnerable to flooding Bangladesh had burrowed millions form MEDC's to create dams and the like to prevent future deaths. Still however in this present day and time Bangladesh is still prone to flooding. Flooding of Bangladesh not only drowned and killed thousands but also brought famine and disease. In a sense this is good because it acts as a way to control the population. ...read more.

Evidently this country will be a producer of goods, and house primary jobs. One of the largest countries in the world is China, and ever so slowly it is becoming more and more advanced. This is evident from the implication the census shows. Over time China's birth rate will fall and the population above the age of 65+ will result more than the people below that age of 30. As China clambers into becoming an MEDC it is also evident that it is beginning to appear like Hong Kong with the age groups all being virtually even. It is possible that the reuniting of China on July 1997 has affected it by introducing new ways and a new economy. Over all China's population will fall and the female to male ratio will become even. Over time the birth rate of the United Kingdom will fall and the level of old people will increase. This means that the United Kingdom will be becoming more and more advanced in technology and health care. This however, will be countered by the rise of old people as there will cause the dependency ration to increase. This thereby causes more working hours for the working age. More importantly is that more and more people will still be in education until about 25 to cope with the advancing world. This will leave only a selection of 25-60 year old in the working industry that will drastically affect the dependency ratio. ...read more.
