The given bar graph depicts the population statistics of Asian elephants by its estimated maximum numbers in 1997 and in 2004.

 In general, out of the nine countries, a significant decline is seen in the number of elephants estimated to be lived in India, Malaysia and Thailand between the years.

 In 1997, majority of Asian elephants were found in India, Myanmar and Thailand. In India, this was nearly 10,000, which was almost the double than that of Myanmar’s elephant numbers (around 5200). In Thailand, this was approximately 3800. In both Malaysia and Sri Lanka, there were around 3000 elephants. The rest of the countries had an average of 1000 elephants.

In seven out of nine countries, the number of Asian elephants declined in varying proportions. The worst occurred in India, where the estimated maximum number dropped by nearly 2400. In both Malaysia and Thailand this was about 2000 and 2200 respectively. From 1000 in 1997, the elephant number in China halved in 2004.The trend was the same, but was much less severe in Sri Lanka, Myanmar and Vietnam. In Laos, there elephant population was recorded the same in both years, whereas Cambodia became the only country in which it had a positive growth (from 1300 to 1400).
