The graph shows changes in the birth and death rates in New Zealand since 1901, and forecasts trends up until 2101 Between 1901 and the present day , the birth rate has been consistently higher than the death rate. It stood at 20,000 at the start of this period and increased to a peak of 66,000 in 1961. Since then, the rate has fluctuated between 65 and 50 thousand and it is expected to decline slowly to around 45,000 births by the end of the century In contrast, the death rate started below 10,000 and has increased steadily until the present time . This increase is expected to be more rapid between 2021 and 2051 when the rate will probably level off at around 60,000 before dropping slightly in 2101 Overall, these opposing trends mean that the death rate will probably overtake the birth rate in around 2041 and the large gap between the two levels will be reversed in the later part of this century Introduction Main Body Conclusion Academic Writing 60 Minutes 02 Sections 400 Words 44.
