This is actually a bar graph, where we can find very distinct comparisons and clear trends. There are clear indications of increase in the number of women in various employments compared to men. The graph description can be based on this trend. Students must study the usages in bold letters, so that they can use them.
The introduction can be written in different ways.
The graphs make a comparative study of the representation of men and women in various employment sectors in the republic of Fredonia over a period of two decades (over two decades) from 1975.
The graphs present a study of the changes in the participation of men and women in different fields of employment in the Republic of Fredonia between 1975 and 1995.
The graphs show the number of men and women employed in various job sectors in 1975 and 1995. (This is a simple introduction.)
It is very useful to write the general trend of the graph as the opening sentence of the body. This can also be written as the conclusion. The two decades between 1975 and 1995 brought about significant positive changes in the representation of women in Fredonia's work force. Let us change the subject: There was a remarkable upward trend (noted improvement) in the number of female workers in various job sectors in Fredonia from 1975 t0 1995.
Let us look at some specific information: Women workers increased in most employment fields and they overtook their male counterparts in communications and wholesale and retail trade. In 1975, for example, about 300000 men and 250 000 women worked in the communications sector. Twenty years later, though the number of men remained
unchanged, the number of women rose to 550 000. A similar situation was seen in the wholesale and retail trade sector, where the number of women rose from about 550000 in 1975 to almost 800 000 two decades later. The number of men in this sector remained stable over the period, at around 70000.
Women also made remarkable gains in both the finance/banking industries and in the defence-related public sector. 125000 women worked in finance and banking institutions in 1975 and the number increased to 450000 by 1995. The number of men grew only marginally from 425 000 to 480 000 over the same period. In defence, the number of men declined from 225000 to 200000, while the number of women rose from 25000 to over 100000.
Two sectors that retained stable employment numbers for both men and women were manufacturing, which had about 300 000 women and 650 000 men in both surveyed years, and the public sector (non-defence), which employed 650000 women and 850000 men.
Thus, women appear to have made gains in the Fredonia work force but not at the expense of men.
