In the near future, I predict the Dominican Republic will start to see a lower CBR and higher CDR as they begin to enter stage 2 of the demographic transition model The Dominican Republic is a country on the island of Hispaniola in the Caribbean. It borders Haiti as well as the Atlantic Ocean and Caribbean Sea. Within the DR, there are four major mountain ranges, which are mostly in the middle west of the country. For the most part, major cities are mostly located on the coast away from the mountains. Although there is some fertile land along the many rivers of the Dominican Republic, it is still located on a very small island in the middle of the ocean. Because of this, they have to rely heavily on importing many resources. Language Dominican Republic Religion Ethnicity Holiday One important holiday in Dominican culture is Independence day, where Dominicans commemorate when they gained their independence from the Haitians. It is celebrated on February 27 with day-long parades and parties Spanish (98%)
English (1%)
Haitian (1%) Roman Catholic (95%)
Non-religious (5%) Classification The Dominican Republic is a nation-state, meaning there's really one major nationality within its borders. This can be good, as it will promote nationalism among people, but it can also be a bad thing because there will not be a lot of diversity. Devolution The Dominican Republic was originally colonized in 1492 by Christopher Columbus and Spain. The DR gained its independence from Spain in 1821. Since then, they have operated under a representative democracy. They are a unitary state, as the power comes from the federal government to the district and local governments. Flag The DR flag includes red, white, blue and the country's coat of arms. Red represents the war for indepence, white represents salvation, and the blue represents freedom Mixed (74%)
