Demographic Transition Model
Yemen is in stage 2 because birth rate remains high but the death rate decreases and the population rises.

Less Economically Developed Country

Yemen is in the LEDC becuase his economy is not good. Yemen is not even close to enter the MEDC because it has bad education, so the country does not move on.

Population Issues
Yemen has lots of population issues, since their is no money to have an education, people are ignorant. So they dont know whats wrong and what is right. When they have enough money to pay education, there would be big changes.
