Task 1: The graph gives information about employment categories of a country in 2003 and 2013
The given bar graph shows employment distribution in an unspecified country over the 10-year course from 2003 to 2013.
The initial impression from the graph is that employment rates in all sectors showed upward trends during the given period, with the exception belonging to the medical field and freelancing. It is also clear that business took up a considerably high proportion among the employment categories surveyed.
In 2003, only a negligible 4% people were employed in the hotel industry. Over the next 10 years, the figure underwent a nearly fivefold rise to its high of nearly 20%. Similar patterns are evident in the field of education/training and building, with the figures increasing from 8% to 18% for the former, and from 11% to 21% for the latter. Freelancers and jobless people each constituted more or less 15% in 2003, and thereafter the figures increased more than twofold to approximately 30-33% in 2013.
Contrary to the aforementioned groups, the proportion of people who worked in medical and business sectors experienced downward trends. In 2003, 21% worked in medical fields and this was halved to 10% in 2013. Likewise, the figure for business sector, despite standing at a very high position of 45% in 2003, underwent a drop and eventually reached 35% in 2013.
