Greece

Greece is in stage four of the demograohic transition. It is mainly due to the very low CDR, and CBR. Also the natural increase rate is in the negatives, and when the natural increase rate hits zero it means that a country is in stage four. The total fertility rate is small which is another sign of a stage four country. Women begin to make better decisions about having children when in later stages of the demographic transition. Lastly the school completion rate is very high which means that more people are becoming educated.

China

China is in stage four of the demographic transition. Even though it has a medium CDR, and CBR it has a low natural increase rate. Which means that it is in the final stages of the demographic transition. Also the total fertility rate is low since women are making smarter decisions about having children. Lastly the school completion rate is very high, and so is the school enrollment.
