    I know in developing countries they have high birth rates, lack of contraceptives
    BUT they have
    high death rates
    high emigration
    high infant mortality rates, low life expectancy
    So why do they have higher population growth?

    Thank you.

    Have more kids as they know that some of them won't survive.
    Cultural impacts - looked more favourably upon if your family is bigger.
    More money if more kids as they can help work, like work on a farm.

    I wouldn't necessarily say that developing countries now have high death rates as practically all developing countries are now in stage 2 of the DTM, with a declining death rate.
    Never really heard of a developing country having high emigration rates?
