The bar chart shows the number of telephone calls in terms of local landline, national and international landline and mobiles in Finland over a 9 year period from 1995 to 2004.

Overall, the three categories: local landline, national-and-international landline and Mobile show a parallel increase after the starting point, although local landline category experienced a downward trend in the last four year of the course.

As per the bar chart, national-and-international calls increased gradually from 6000 million minutes in 1995 to 10000 million minutes in 2004, a rise about 4000 minutes calls. Occupying 12000 minutes calls in 1995, the local landline doubled in number compared to the national and international landline calls recorded in the same years. The local landline recorded as the main communication media using by Finland's residents. After a short peak period in 2001, the figure for local landline dropped consecutively to finish at 12000 calls, a similar number of such figure in 1995.

Finland residents were less likely to use mobiles, even though the record showed that it gained the highest improvement of the overall categories. It start closely to zero calls then underwent a little dip in 1999 prior to rose sharply nearly 10000 minutes in the last statistic year. However, the gap between three categories had narrowed considerably over the second half of the period in question, although local landlines were the still popular in 2004.

I don't get your question quite rightly, but I guess you are asking how hyphen is used in sentences. Well this is what I found for you;

Hyphens are used to link words and parts of words. They are not as common today as they used to be, but there are three main cases where you should use them:

in compound words
to join prefixes to other words
to show word breaks

On the other hand, the red chart was increased steadily throughout the survey.
I think the 'chart' should be substituted by 'bar' and the word 'was' before increased should be deleted .

You have one idea and several bits of supporting evidence within a single paragraph.

Coherence within a paragraph is crucial to IELTS writing.
