The chart below shows the different levels of post-school qualifications in Australia and the proportion of men and women who held them in 1999.Summarise the information by selecting and reporting the main features, and make comparisons where relevant.
This is my answer
The bar chart compares five different types of higher education qualifications and the percentage of Australian men and women who had them in the year 1999.
At first glance we can see that skilled vocational diplomas were far more popular among males than females, while undergraduate diplomas were more common between women. On the other hand, almost the same proportion of men and women held a Bachelor's degree in 1999.
Around 70% of postgraduate diploma holders were males, whereas 30% were females. Moreover, a higher proportion of men than women (60% and 40% respectively) held a Master's degree in 1999. By contrast, 70% of those who held an undergraduate diploma were women.
Only 10% of skilled vocational diploma holders were females, compared to a ninefold figure for males, at around 90%. On the contrary, the smallest gender difference is at the Bachelor's degree level, where men and women accounted for approximately 50% each.
Any comments are appreciated. Thanks
