The chart below shows the amount of leisure time enjoyed by men and women of different employment status.
Write a report for a university lecturer describing the information shown below.
- You should write at least 150 words.
- Allow yourself 20 minutes for this task.

The given bar chart illustrates the leisure time in a typical week spend by male and female who are employed part time and full time, unemployed, housewives and retirees in the years 1998-1999.

Overall, the same number of hours are spend by employed and retired male and female which are 85 hrs and 80hrs period respectively. The same trend can be observed in case of women who are employed full time and part time that are 38 hrs and 40hrs respectively. Housewives are getting leisure time approximately equal to the number of hours of the full time employed men, fifty hours.

On the contrary, the number of leisure time spends by part time employed men are not available. Employed full time men spend only half the hours of leisure time than of the unemployed and retired man. In the same way, the number of hours spends by the unemployed, retired women are two times higher than that of part time, and fulltime employed women.

In short, men are enjoying more leisure time while comparing to women. However, the differences of number of leisure hours between the both sexes are minimal.

Thanks for your comments on "space vs malnutrition".
Second sentence after the introduction of the graph, to be included as if you are looking at a glance, preferably without figures. Then, it will give your writing a nice print.
