money spent for children's physical activity
The line graphs illustrate two sets of data about the monthly amount of money that British parents spent for their children's sport since 2008 to 2014 and the number of kids who take part in football, athletics, and swimming. Overall, the first visual shows that there is a linear increase in children's sports spending of parents. Different than the first one, the second line graph demonstrates three different trends of balancing, slight fluctuate, and gradual increase of football, athletics, and swimming respectively.
First of all, only in 6 years, the amount of money that parents willing to pay for their children's sports has rocketed from 20 pounds in 2008 to over 30 pounds in 2014.
The number of children who participate in the 3 sport also shows an increase in number but with different rates and trends. From 2008 to 2014, Football, which has the highest number of participants is balanced in the range between over 7.5 million and under 10 million. Athletics started off small with a quarter of 2.5 million but rocketed in 2010 and reached its peak at a little bit over 5 million in 2012. Swimming shows a similar rate of development to that of the parent's monthly spending on children's sport. It was just under 2.5 million in 2008 but gradually increasing since then and will catch up with athletics at this rate.
