The statistics of the volume of visitors to the Cox Town museum from six European countries every two years from 1990 till 2000 is shown in the given table.

As can be seen from the table, Russia can be seen exceptional, with the highest number of visitors to the museum (around 36,000). However, the growth in the number of Russian visitors was merely 1,000.

The most notable positive variation in the visitor number is seen in case of the Turkish, when the figure exhibited a six-fold increase in 2000 from just 4,000 in 1990. Here, the sharpest surge is seen in the last couple of years (6000).

The progression of the visitor number from Germany was not as spiky as Turkey. This aggregate touched 27,000 in 2000 from 20,000 in 1990.

On the other side, a negative growth is seen in case of the number of visitors from Spain, France and England. The volume of the Spanish visitors fell from 22,000 to 18,100 over the years. However, its drop was sharper in case of the French and the English. It touched a nadir of 5,000 in 2000, which can be seen as a considerable decline compared to the previous years.

Overall, it is clear that, except in case of the attendance of Russians and the Spanish to the museum, the major statistical movements happened in the later half of the decade.
