IELTS Bar Chart - Annual GDP Growth
The bar graph shows how levels of annual GDP growth for Tunisia, Ecuador and Japan have altered from 2007 to 2010.
More specifically, in 2007, Tunisia’s GDP growth rate was approximately 6.3%. However, thereafter, there was a drop to almost 4.5% in 2008 and this trend continued undoubtedly through to 2010, by which time the percentage had fallen significantly to only 3%. This was, indeed, a drop of slightly more than 3% since 2007.
This declining trend was in sharp contrast with a massive increase for Japan, which went up more than threefold: rising from 2% in 2007 to a massive 6.5%.
Finally, Ecuador’s annual GDP growth fluctuated wildly across the three- year period, with an overall downward trend. For example, in 2007, the percentage began at just over 3%. However, despite reaching just under 5% in 2008, there was a drop in 2009, when it hit an unprecedented low of nearly 1.2%. The year 2000, nevertheless, saw a slight increase by nearly 1%.
