The table summarises the percentage of money spent on three different items,by people in five European countries,in 2002.

Turkey spent the highest amount (32.14%)on food ,drinks and tobacco and this is more than twice as the amount spen by Sweden (15.77%).Ireland spent 28.91% whereas the expenditures were much less in Spain (18.8%) and Italy ( 16.36%)

In contrast to a lesser expenditure on food,drinks and tobacco,Spain paid a big amount for clothing (9%).All the other countries paid almost similar percentage on clothing and food,around 6%.

Thank you

I would suggest to add variety to your vocabulary. For example, you have used " spent; country; education; leisure; amount" repeatedly. Good luck.
