Hi! This is the first practice test I've taken in preparation for the IELTS. I would like to be critiqued on this summary I have written of the chart posted along with this. Thanks!

There seems to be no correlation between the population of a region and its share of global wealth. North America being the richest continent of the world, with a third of the global wealth has a population roughly a fourth that of China, which has the world's largest population and less than a seventh of North America's wealth.

At the same time, a region's share of wealth is not inversely correlated with its population either - Europe, only second to North America in terms of wealth, has a population almost equal to India, one of the world's poorest regions.

Third in terms of percentage of global wealth are the richer portions of Asia-Pacific, with a population similar to North America and in possesion of a fourth of the global wealth.

When the wealth of a region is compared with its population, North America again emerges in the lead, with richer areas of Asia-Pacific, Europe, and Latin America and the Carribean following; India having the least concentration of wealth amongst its population.
