I picked Indonesia and Mongolia for this assignment because I know them to have dramatically different populations sizes and climates. I found that despite radically different population sizes and densities, they are at similar stages of population maturity and have similar growth expectations. They are both between stages 2 & 3 and in 50 years-- barring war or disaster-- they will both be at stage 3.
