The table below gives information on consumer spending on different items in five different countries in 2002.
Summarize the information by selecting and reporting the main features and make comparisons where relevant.
Write at least 150 words.
The table compare spending on three categories – food/drinks/tobacco, clothing/ footwear and leisure/education – in Ireland, Italy, Sweden, and Turkey in 2002, as a percentage of total consumer spending.
People in Turkey (32.14) and Ireland (28.91) spend relatively high amounts on food/drinks/ tobacco, whilst consumers in Spain (18.80@, Italy (16.36) and Sweden (15.77) spend roughly hall that proportion.
The percentages for spending on clothing/ footwear differ to a lesser degree. Consumers in Turkey (6.63%), Spain (6.51%) and Ireland (6.43%) speed around 6.5% of their household expenditure on clothing/ footwear. People on Sweden spend a lower proportion (5.4%) and people in Italy spend relatively more (9.00%).
Spending on leisure/ education is relatively low in all five countries, though there are marked differences. People in Turkey spend the highest percentage on this item (4.35%). Those in Sweden and Italy spent almost exactly the same percentage (3.22% and 3.20% respectively). In Ireland, the figure was 2.21% and in Spain it was 1.98% – less than half the figure for Turkey.
Overall, we can see that spending on food/drinks/tobacco was always greater than spending on clothing/ footwear, which in turn was always higher than expenditure on leisure/ education.
Sample Answer 2:
The given data represents the amount spent by consumers in Ireland, Italy, Spain, Sweden and Turkey in three categories in the year 2002. As is presented in the table data, People of those countries spent more on foods and tobaccos than they did for dresses, education and entertainments.
According to the given data, Turk people spent the highest percentage of foods and tobaccos amounting one-third of their total expenses on consumer products. Irish people spent more than 28% on this category while people of Italy, Spain and Sweden spent just over 15% for foods and tobaccos. For clothing and footwear, the people of these five countries spent around 5% to 9% of which Italian spent the highest percentage (9%).
Interestingly the expenditure in leisure activities and education was much less than the amount spent on food, tobacco and dresses. The highest amount spent on education and entertainment was done by Turkish people (4.35%) and the least amount spent by was in Spain (1.98%). No nation among the given five spent more than 5% in education and leisure activities according to the given data.
Sample Answer 1.
The chart gives information about post-school qualifications in terms of the different levels of further education reached by men and women in Australia in 1999.
We can see immediately that there were substantial differences in the proportion of men and women at different levels.
The biggest gender difference is at the lowest post-school level, where 90% of those who held a skilled vocational diploma were men, compared with only 10% of women.
By contrast, more women held undergraduate diploma (70%) and marginally more women reached degree level (55%).
At the higher levels of education, men with postgraduate diplomas clearly outnumbered their female counterparts (70% and 30%, respectively), and also constituted 60% of Master’s graduates.
Thus we can see that more men than women hold qualifications at the lower and higher levels of educations, while more women reach undergraduate diploma level than men. The gender difference is smallest at the level of Bachelor’s degrees.
Sample Answer 2.
As the picture shows, it describes the difference of education level between men and women in Australia in the year 1999. Overall, men were positioned as the first rank and the well-educated people in that year. The data was calibrated in percentage.
A glance at men’s bars, the most notable bar was skilled vocational diploma. It peaked just over 90%. The following level of educations were postgraduate diploma and master’s degree at 70% and 60% respectively. Both bachelor’s degree and undergraduate diploma were not over 50%.
On the other hand, the highest education that women encountered was undergraduate diploma. In fact, this level was the same percentage as men’s postgraduate. Moreover, bachelor’s degree, as the second highest level, was over than men, at around 53%. The next education was master’s degree at 40%. Both postgraduate and skilled vocational were not over 35%, where the lowest level positioned at 10%.
In conclusion, men were well-educated people in that year than women based on that charts.
Main reasons for Migration to & from the UK – 2014
The first pie chart classifies the main reason for different nationalities to migrate to the UK while the second one shows the reasons for English to leave the country in 2014. Overall, study and job were two predominant reasons for people to migrate to and from the UK.
As is stated, almost one-third of the people immigrated to the UK in 2014 for academic study and that comprised the highest percentages of immigrants in the UK. 28% foreigners came to work for a UK company while 14% were there to get a job. Interestingly, one out of ten came to join friends or family members. 7% of them stated no apparent reason for their migration and the remaining 10% came for reasons that are not listed in the diagram.
On the other hand, the highest percentage of British migrated to other countries for their study and just over one-fourth were hired by foreign companies. It is worth noticing that the primary reasons for immigration and emigration to and from the UK have a similar pattern. 15% British moved to other countries to search for a job and 14% moved to accompany someone they knew. Remaining 17% left the UK for unspecified reasons.
