North American Fish Catch
Annual fish catch (millions of tonnes):North America
North American fisheries have been in severe decline since the late 1980s, with at least one-third of all species overfished.
North American fish catchers
The graph shows changes in fish catches for the US and Canada over the last 30 years.
The most significant feature is that fish catches have declined drastically in both the US and Canada since the mid-1980s.Although Canadian production is much lower ,its echoes US figures, declining or increasing at the same rate.
Between 1972 and 1977, US fish catches averaged between 2.5 and 2.75 million tonnes per year, while Canadian landings fluctuated between 800,000 and 1.1 million tonnes .In 1997, however , there was a big increase in fish caught in the US, this rise continued up to a peak of 5.5 million tonnes in 1987 . During the same period , Canada 's catch increased from 1 million tonnes to 1.5 million tonnes, an increase of 50%.
From 1987 onwards , there was a sudden decline in both countries .US figures tumbled 1 to 4 million tonnes in 1995 , a drop of 28% , and Canadian catches plunged 2 to 0.5 million tonnes , a drop of 66%. In the following four years , US catches fluctuated around the 4 million tone mark , while Canadian catches rose very slightly.
In general, both Canadian and the much larger US catch have declined dramatically 3 since their peak in the mid -1980s.

Heart Attacks by Age and Gender, USA
The graph shows how age and gender influence the frequency of heart attacks in the US.
Less than 6% of all heart attacks occur in the 29-44 age group .The number of women who suffer heart attacks in this group is negligible 1 -only 3000 per year ,compared to 123,000 men.
However the proportion 2 of men and women with heart attacks rises dramatically 3 between 45 and 64, with over half a million per year. Over 420,000 men a year in this age group have heart attacks .The incidence amongst women increases - women have one heart attack for every three men in this age group.
Over the age of 65 , the number of men suffering heart attacks only increases slightly . However there is a huge increase in the number of women with heart attacks –they comprise over 40% of all victims.
In conclusion , men are more likely to be the victims of heart attacks at all ages, but women are increasingly likely over the age of 65.
1.negligible : too small in amount
2.proportion : amount, size
3.dramatically : suddenly or obviously
Fertility Rates (Births per Woman) in Persian Gulf Countries, 1990-2000
The chart shows striking 1 changes in the fertility rate of women in six Persian Gulf countries –Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Oman ,Qatar, Kuwait and Bahrain between 1990 and 2000.
In the ten year period , there was a decline 2 in the number of births per woman in all countries . The biggest decline were in two countries which had low fertility rates at the start of the decade, Bahrain and the UAE.
Fertility rates vary greatly 3 between the six countries . Oman and Saudi Arabia had the highest rates, with over seven births per woman in 1990.this compared with around 4 births per woman in Bahrain and the UAE, and just 3.75 in Kuwait.
By 2000, the rate had fallen below three births per woman in Kuwait ,Bahrain and UAE, with a drop of over 25% in a decade in the UAE . However , in Saudi Arabia and Oman ,the rates fell by just 20% from 7.0 to 5.5.
In summary 4 , there were major decreases in birth rates in all countries ,but some countries in the region have double the fertility rate of others.
1.striking : more attractive than usual
2.decline: decrease, go down
3.greatly: very much extremely

Oil Production Capacity (estimated)
Oil Production Capacity
The graph shows oil production capacity in millions of barrels per day for selected Gulf countries .There are several features 1 in this graph.
The most significant feature is that oil production will increase sharply 2 in almost all the countries shown. Kuwait and Iraq are both expected to double 3 their output between 1990 and 2010, with Kuwait 's production rising from 1.8 million barrels per day (bpd) in 1990 to 3.8 in 2010.Iran will also increase its output by a slightly 4 smaller amount .After remaining steady at 2.5 million bpd from 1990 to 2000 , the UAE 's output is expected to approach 5 4.0 million bpd in 2010.only Qatar 's production is predicted to fall, back to 0.8 million bpd after a slight rise in 2000.
However , the greatest increase will be from Saudi Arabia . In 1990, its output capacity at 8.5 million bpd exceeded 6 the combined production of Iran ,Iraq and Kuwait. This lead is expected to continue with a 75% increase in production to 14.5 million bpd 2010.
In summary ,while most of the countries are expected to show increases, Saudi Arabia will maintain7 and strengthen 8 its position as the major producer.

US Spending Patterns, 1966-1996
US Spending Patterns 1966-1996
The pie charts show changes in American spending patterns between 1966 and 1996.
Food and cars made up 1 the two biggest items of expenditure in both years. Together they comprised 2 over half of household spending .Food accounted for 3 44% of spending in 1966, but this dropped by two thirds to 14%in 1996.However, the outlay on cars doubled ,rising from 23%in 1966 to 45%in 1996.
Other areas changed significantly . Spending on eating out doubled , climbing from 7% to 14% . The proportion of salary spent on computers increased dramatically 4 , up from 1% in 1996 to 10% in 1996.However, as computer expenditure rose , the percentage of outlay 5 on books plunged 6 from 6% to 1%.
Some areas remained relatively 7 unchanged .Americans spent approximately 8 the same amount of salary on petrol and furniture in both years.
In conclusion , increased amounts spent on cars , computers , and eating out were made up for 9 by drops in expenditure on food and books.

UAE Moves Ahead in Health, Education
January 22, 2003
The graphs show health and education spending and changes in life expectancy 1 and infant 2 mortality 3 in the UAE. Overall, as the percentage spent on health and education increases , infant mortality and life expectancy improve.
Graph 1 shows the percentage of GDP 4 spent on health and education between 1985 and 1993 . There were big increases in both areas. Health spending stood at about 8%in 1985 but rose to 9% in 1990 and 10% in 1993. Spending on education was even higher. It was 10% in 1985, and shot up 5 to 14% in 1990 and 15% in 1993, a 50% increase in just 8 years.
Graph 2 shows improvements in life expectancy and infant mortality between 1970 and 1992. Life expectancy was just 60 in 1970 but rose to almost 72 in 1992.In contrast 6 , the number of babies dying dropped dramatically , from 60 per 1000 in 1970 to only 22 in 1992.
In conclusion, people in the UAE are living longer and healthier lives because of the government 's spending on education and medical facilities.

Fast Food UK; Quantity
Consumption of Fast Food in the UK in Grams per week ,1970 to 1990
The graph shows changes in the amount of fast food consumed in the UK between 1970 and 1990. Several trends are apparent . First, Brintons are eating more and more fast food . Secondly, the type of fast food has changed.
In 1970, the most popular fast food was fish and chips. Over 300g were consumed each week. By 1990,however, this had fallen to just over 200g-a50% drop. Consumption of other fast foods such as pizza and hamburgers increased , however. The amount of pizza eaten shot up from about 20 g a week to more than 270g, overtaking fish and chips in the late 1980s.Hamburgur consumption also increased ,rising from about 80g in 1970 to almost 300g in 1990.
Accompanying this change in the choice of foods was an increase in the amount of fast foods consumed. In 1970,British consumers ate about 450g a week of fast food. In 1990, on the other hand, this had more than doubled , to 1000g.
