Sample Answer :

The bar chart illustrates changes in the percentage of concert goers by age group in a particular city from 2010 to 2015.

Overall, people aged 55 to 64 years-old showed decreasing interest in music concerts over the period, whereas the opposite was true for the other age groups. Additionally, going to concerts was most popular amongst young people aged 16 and 24 over the entire research period.

At 40% in 2010, the percentage of the youngest age group grew to 55% in 2011, and then continued to rise to 70% in 2015. The figure for those from 25 to 44 years old, despite having a higher starting point(2) , dipped to 40%, before recovering to its initial value in 2012 and rising steadily to about 53% in 2015.

Regarding the 45-54 year-olds and the over-75 year-olds, from 2010 to 2011, the figure for the former dropped from 40% to 32%, while that of the latter doubled to 20%. However, by 2012, these figures had both fallen to 30% and 10%, before rising again to nearly 50% and 20% respectively. Meanwhile, there was a slight rise in the percentage of 55 to 64 year-old concert goers from 2010 to 2013, followed by a gradual decrease to around 23% by 2015.
