The bar graph above gives us information about the amount of money spent of three types of food; fish, chips and hamburgers by three income groups in Great Britain. The line graph below on the other hand gives us information about the total consumption of these types of food in grams irrespective of the income groups.
According to the bar graph the high and average income groups spend the maximum on hamburgers. On an average a person of the high income group spends 42 pence per week on hamburgers while a person from the average income groups spends 10 pence less. The high income group spends the least on fish and chips but it is nearly the same it spends on pizza.
All three income groups spend the least amount on pizza. The expense is as low as 10 pence per week.
Fish and chips is more favourable to low income groups and they spend the highest on this, which is 20 pence per week. This is nearly double of what they spend on pizza.
According to the line graph the consumption of pizza was the least in the year 1970. It was 50 grams per person in a week. The consumption of hambugers was higher than this but only 100 grams. The consumption of fish and chips was the highest. It was three times that of hamburgers. It was 300 grams.
The consumption of fish and chips began to decline and by the year 1985 the consumption came down to 200 grams. On the other hand the consumption of hamburgers and pizza began to go up after 1975.
In the year the consumption of hamburger and fish and chips was the same, that is 200 grams. In the year 1988 the consumption of fish and chips and pizza was also the same, that is 200 grams.
After 1982 the consumption of hamburgers and pizza began to increase sharply. By the year 1990, that is over a period of two decades, the consumption of hamburgers increased five times. Its consumption was 500 grams.
But the consumption of fish and chips and pizza remained was half of that of hamburgers in1990, that is around 250 grams.
We can conclude by saying that the consumption of hamburgers was the highest. The consumption of fish and chips and pizza was nearly the same.
