The epidemiological transition, also referred to as the health and mortality transition in our text book, is the change from deaths occurring at young ages because of communicable diseases (or infectious diseases) to deaths occurring at old ages because of degenerative diseases (or noninfectious, chronic illnesses). The epidemiological transition is concurrent with the decline in mortality, which out text book states ?is brought about by changes in society that improve the health of people and thus their ability to resist disease, and by scientific advances that prevent premature death? (Weeks 2005:98-99). This pattern suggests that overpopulation is not necessarily due to increased fertility, but is due to declining mortality. Modernization and industrialization played a useful role in these factors.
