The first graph above shows information regarding computer ownership as a percentage of the population between the years 2002 and 2010. The second graph shows the percentage of computer ownership in 2002 and 2010 by level of education.
From the year 2002 to 2010, the percentage of the population who owned computers had increased steadily. It started at approximately 55% in 2002, and ended at approximately 70% in 2010.
This steady upward trend is also present in the second graph. In the year 2002, the percentage of computer ownership increased quite steadily as the level of education increased. Individuals with a postgraduate qualification had the highest percentage of computer ownership, while individuals without a high school diploma experienced the lowest percentage of computer ownership. The year 2010 depicted a very similar correlation between the percentages of computer ownership and the individual’s education level. However, all the figures in 2010 were higher than the figures presented in the year 2002.
In conclusion, the percentage of the population who owned a computer rose gradually between the years 2002 and 2010. In addition, there was also a positive relationship between computer ownership and education level, in both the years 2002 and 2010.
