The table presents the percentage of poor families livinggives information about poverty rates among six types of household in Australia during a calendarin the year 1999

Overall, the highest percentage of poverty living showed in sole parent trend while the least age coupled group strong stance in statistic's year.

The level of poverty were higher for single people than for couples, and people with children were more likely to be poor than those without. Poverty rates were considerably lower among elderly people.

Try to compare whole categories (columns or rows) rather than individual 'cells' in the table. If you can't compare whole categories, compare the biggest and smallest number. Write 2 sentences for the summary.

sole parent trend accounted as the highest familial type living in poverty by 21 % of the overall percentage.

Just over one fifth of single parents were living in poverty (add this:whereas only 12% of parents living with a partner were classed as poor. )

In your two 'details' paragraphs, never describe each category (column or row) separately. The examiner wants to see comparisons. Try to organize the numbers you highlighted into 2 groups - one for each paragraph (e.g. highest numbers for all categories together, and lowest numbers together)

As per the table, sole parents had been trendaccounted as the highest familial type living in poverty by 21 % of the overall percentage total Australians in poverty in 1999 accounting to 232,000 people .

By comparison with aged coupled family being noted as the least 4 %, such trend had more five-fold increase in full loan of household living.

What does this mean? It sounds so confusing :( what is this five fold increase and full loan? You should be very careful in the detail paras as they deal with lots of figures and data. The reader tends to get more confused in these detail paras and it is your responsibility to present data in a logical way without presenting them in more complex sentences.
