Paragraph 3: (1) Talk about the number of people owning computers. Give figures.
The given bar chart represents data associated with computer ownership that is further classified by education level from 2002 to 2010.
A stable but substantial increase is evident in the population percentage that owned computer over the given period. In 2002, only a bit more than half the population had computers, whereas three out of four people had a computer at home in 2010.
A scrutiny of the data by education level demonstrates that higher education levels correspond to higher computer ownership levels in both years. In 2002, only around 15% of the people who didn’t finish high school owned a computer, but this number tripled by 2010. Also, in 2001, for those with a high school diploma or an unfinished college education, there were significant upsurges, of almost 30%, which reached up to 65% and 85% respectively in 2010. However, graduates and postgraduates had the greatest ownership levels in 2010, at 90% and 95%, respectively, 20% higher than 2002.
