Moon, your summary just needed the enumeration of the nations included in the table and the comparison type for the information, which is shown was a "decade on decade" basis. It is not a comparison from 1980- 2000 . Try to use more advanced references to create a more extensive / advanced English vocabulary. It is more impressive to use the term "decade on decade" because the graph shows a 10 year count (considered a decade) between years represented.

You have a very small mistakes in this essay presentation. It is almost negligible. Except, you forgot to indicate that "The data for Ireland and Korea were not available for the years 1990 and 1980 respectively." This is an example of an advanced English sentence structure based on grammar and presentation. It shows an academic tone and a professional review of the data provided. You have to mention it because the missing data is even given a special mention in the illustration with the highlight "Figure not available". Remember, present all the data, specially those that appear to have a special representation in the illustration.
