Less Developed - Primary Economic ActivitiesStage 4: Post-Industrial - Low Birth/Low Death
More Developed- Mostly Tertiary Economic Activities, emergence of Quaternary Economic ActivitiesStage 3: Industrialize - Rapidly Decreasing Birth/Low Death- Newly Industrializing Mostly Secondary Economic Activities, Emergence of Tertiary Economic Activities
