You should spend about 20 minutes on this task.The charts below show the levels of participation in education and science in developing and industrialised countries in 1980 and 1990. Write a report for a university lecturer describing the information shown below.You should write at least 150 words.
The bar charts present the participation levels of population in developing and developed countries in the field of education and science from 1980 to 1990. Overall, it is noticeable that, while the length of school year and the number of scientists and technicians experienced a positive trend for both countries, the figure for research and development saw the reverse.
To begin with, in 1980, people in developing countries spent fewer years at school, about 2,5 years, compared to 8 years in industrialised countries. Ten years later, there was a slight rise in both figures, roughly 1-2. Similarly with the number of scientists and technicians which began at 10 and 40 initially for developing and industrialised countries respectively, then increased by 5 and 25 over a one-decade period.
In contrast, the amount of money spent on research and development was not as well as the previous categories. People in developed countries increased their budget from US$ 150 billions in 1980 to US$ 350 billions in 1990. Meanwhile, the developing countries saw a slight decrease by around US$ 20 billions.
