The aggregate income of a typical family and their disbursement on food and clothes, along with its pattern in a UK city in 2010 and 2013 is portrayed in the twin charts given.
At a glance, it is clear that despite a fall in the gross income of the city residents, their spending on food and clothes inclined between the years, specifically on food and drinks.
As per the table, there was a sharp decline in the total earning of an average household, and this was from £29,000 in 2010 to £25,000 in 2013. However, their expenditure on food and clothes showed a hike of £1000 from £14000.
It can be observed from the first pie chart that most share of expenditure was on meat, which accounted for exactly a quarter of the total spending, whereas it was a fifth in case of fruits and vegetables. Nevertheless, the trend reversed in 2013, when the share of meat declined by 10%, whilst the fruits and vegetable’s share inclined by 15%. When there was a 5% hike in the expending rate on dairy products, no change was observed in case of other food and drinks (18%).
It is also noted that the percentage of spending on clothes had declined by 10% in 2013 from 22% in 2010.
