Task I: The chart below shows three different crimes and the number of cases committed between 1970 and 2005 (ref: IMG_3724.ONG)
The chart illustrates the number of cases in three different crimes in England and Wales from 1970 to 2005.
Overall, the crime numbers of car theft, house burgling and street robbery all experienced an upward trend over the period.
The car theft generally had the highest record among these three crimes throughout the period. It was at 0.4 million cases in 1970 and gradually increased to 1.0 million cases 20 years later. From 1990 to 1995, it experienced a rapid surge to 1.6 million cases and continued with a rebound and finished the period with about 1.0 million in cases by 2005.
The house burgling started with 0.2 million cases in 1970, exceeding the car theft in 1978, and reaching its peak at 0.9 million cases 2 years later. At this point, the crime fell to around 0.3 million cases by 2005, except for 1985 to 1990. In the meantime, the street robbery remained steady until 2000, and then gradually rose to 0.2 million cases in 2005.
