leisure activities by males and females in the USA

Sample Answer:

The bar graph compares the amount of time men and women expended every day in different leisure and sports activities in America in 2014.
One striking feature of the chart is that watching TV was the favorite free time activity for both the genders. On average, males spent 3 hours daily in front of their TV sets while women spent 2.6 hours. Socializing and interacting with family and friends was the next most preferred form of recreation, accounting for 0.7 hours per day for both males and females.
It is also noticeable that men devoted more time to other leisure activities, sports, exercise and using electronic devices like computers for playing games or for entertainment as compared to women. On the other hand, the opposite was true for reading as females expended 0.4 hours daily on this activity whereas men spent merely 0.3 hours. Interestingly, thinking or relaxing were equally popular among both sexes. This form of entertainment accounted for 0.3 hours daily for both men and women.
Overall, there are minor differences in the amounts of times males and females spent in different leisure and sport activities but watching TV was the activity which occupied the most time.

ANSWER:

The bar chart highlights the variation in the total wealth of the UK according to three different sectors over a decade (2000 -2010).
Between 2000 and 2002, the UK household net wealth remained fairly stable at about £4,500. The figures for both households and government sectors rose consistently in the following years until the economic downturn in 2008. In that year, the net worth of UK households dropped to about £6,000 billion, a significant decrease of approximately £800 billion compared with 2007. Interestingly, UK households wealth recovered in the next two years but the government’s net worth went into negative figures in 2010. It is important to note that throughout the given period the government’s wealth was comparatively much lower than that of the households.
Looking at the total wealth of the UK between 2000 and 2010, the figures were on a par with that of UK households. In six of the ten years represented in the chart, UK households were worth approximately 5% to 10% more than the UK total. For just under a third of this period, in the years 2002 to 2004, the UK total was equal to or greater than the total worth of UK households. Although, the net worth of business in the country improved from 2000 to 2002, this trend did not last and began to worsen again only a year later. From 2005 to 2007, although the rest of the country experienced continued growth, the wealth of business returned to the 2000 levels.
Overall, the total wealth of UK households and the government sector followed an upward trend in the given time period except in 2008. Surprisingly, the business sector remained the least growing section of the UK economy.

IELTS Graph deaths by gender in Australia

IELTS Graph deaths by gender in Australia

 

 

ANSWER:

The bar graph compares the proportion of males and females who died from various diseases in Australia in 2014.

It is clearly evident that ischaemic heart diseases were the biggest cause of death for both men and women in 2014, accounting for 11,082 and 9,091 deaths, respectively. Dementia including Alzheimer and cerebrovascular diseases were more prevalent among females than males. About 14000 women and slightly more than 8000 men died from them.

Looking at life threatening health problems among men, it is noticeable that trachea, bronchus and lung cancer and chronic lower respiratory diseases were two major killers. These illnesses took the lives of nearly 9000 men as compared to 7000 women.  Surprisingly, the mortality rate due to diabetes was approximately equal for both genders as figures stood at just over 2000 in both cases. Various types of cancers such as skin, blood, colon, breast and prostate etc. were also responsible for numerous deaths of both sexes in that year.

Overall, ischaemic cardiovascular problems contributed to the largest number of deaths in 2014.  Other major causes of deaths reflect a gender bias: mental disorders like dementia and Alzheimer killed more females whereas respiratory diseases led to the loss of lives of more males.
