The first chart compares the percentage of English people living alone in terms of age distribution by gender in the year 2011. The second chart gives information about how many bedrooms these one-households had in the same year.

It is clear that women aged 65 and over were more likely to live by themselves than men in England. At the same time, it is also noticeable that the majority of one-households lived in a 2-bedroom residence.

According to the bar chart, there were more men who lived alone than women in age groups under 65. Close to 65% men aged 35 to 49 lived by themselves that year, but this proportion shrank with age. From 65 onwards, it is shown that the figure for women who lived alone was increasing, at around 63% in the 65- to 74-year-old bracket and 76% in the 85-and-over group respectively.

Looking at the pie chart, we can see that for all age groups, 35.4% one-households in England lived in a 2-bedroom residence. There were similar percentages of people living alone in 1-bedroom and 3-bedroom house, at 28% and 29.8% respectively. Only 1.4% one-households lived in houses that had more than 5 bedrooms.

The bar chart below illustrates the percentage of both genders divided in age groups in England, who were living on there one in 2011. While the pie chart showes the figure of bedrooms in the dwellings of those alone living people.

From an overall perspective, it is clear form the evidence that, more males were living alone than femailes in the ealier stages of their live. However, this changed afterword.

A closer look at the data reveals that, the number of man living alone increased gradually untill the age of 35-45 reaching the highest point with 65% (16-24 with 52%, 25-34 with 62% ) . Afther that point, figures are falling gradually reaching approximately 24%. On the other hand, woman are taking a opposite trend meating the males with an equally trend with the age of 50-64, and hitting a peak at the age of 85 and over with 75%, ofcourse the lowest percetage for males at that age.

Looking at the pie chart , it is noticed that people with one or two bedrooms toghter are more that a half of Englnad`s citizen.

The bar chart compares shows the percentage of English people who lived alone according to their ages in 2011, while the pie chart shows information about the amounts of bedrooms in these single-person households.

Mid-life (35-49 aged) British men and age of 85 and over British women living alone peak at around 65% and 75%, respectively.

Compare one more charts. Thank you Simon great tips!


The bar chart compares the number of British men and women who were living alone in the year of 2011.whereas the pie chart shows how many bedrooms were in these singled apartments.
It is obvious that the number of males under 50 who were living alone exceeds the number of females of the same age group. Also it is noticeable that the majority of these households contained two bedrooms.
In terms of age distribution,men who lived alone and aged under 50 were more than women. While, there was an equal percentage of men and women whose age ranged between 50 and 65 who lived by themselves. Starting from the age of 60 there was more preference of females to live alone than that of their equal males.
Concerning the number of bedrooms in these one person households, about 35% of these houses contained two bedrooms while 28% and 29,8% of them had one bedroom and three bedrooms respectively. A smaller number of houses at 7% had more than 3 bedrooms .

The two different graphs compared that the figures of Britain in gender who were living alone, with age distributions, And how many bedrooms for one-person households in 2011.

The two different charts compared the figure of British in gender whose was living alone, with age distributions. And also how many sleeping quarters for solo households, they had in the year of 2011.
Overall, It is clear that the cluster of senior citizen of women seems to occupy the majorly figures than other groups of young adults of the men. Moreover, the most percentage of female brackets indicate generally upward tread. Conversely, male bracket shows gradual downfall by 2011. Furthermore, the most of English men and Women preferred living with 3 bedrooms flat in the same year.
As can be seen, the figures show that single household greater distributed in elderly people of the female were, in ascending order, 65-74,75-84 and 85 and over years old. These were over 60 %, over 70% and about 75% individually. Whereas, the majority of one- person, inhabited was the young adults in terms of 16-24, 25-34 and 35-49 years old, these represented over 50 %, over 60%, and about 65% respectively. And the other groups of people were 50-64, with 50% and All ages, by its figures equal 45% in gender.
According to the pie charts described that 3 sleeping pad was far more popular by the English men and women, with 35.4 %. And the 1 and 2 bedrooms take up about half of proportions 57.8%, the others are 4 and 5 or more bedrooms seems less popular among these people were only about 6%.

Furthermore, the most of English men and Women preferred living with 2 bedrooms flat in the same year.

The bar chart compares the percentages of female and male in English who lived alone in 2010 from all different ages, and the pie chart show the numbers of different number of bedrooms in houses whose householders live alone.

In all, in English females were more likely to live alone than males and the percent of female above 35 in age living alone increased rapidly with age. At the same time, those people living alone tend to live in a house with more than one bedroom.

According to the bar chat, the number of males from 16 to 49 years old who live alone was a little greater than the number of females at the same age, and the males from 35 to 49 years old were the most likely to live without family, about 65% of people at the same age. And surprisingly, the numbers of the female and male from 50 to 64 years old was the same. Females in English above 65 were more likely to live without family than male. The percent of the females more than 85 years old was greatest among all ages.

From the pie chart, we can see that 35%, the greatest percent, of one-person household lived in a two-bedroom house, and the number of one-person household living a one-bedroom and three-bedroom residence was roughly the same. Relative few of one-person households liked to live in a house with more than three bedrooms, at 6.7% of one-person households.

Dear Sir,
Please corrective the follow sentence as related to the mentioned topic
Thank you very much

....The second chart gives the number of bedrooms in these person house,
... The second chart gives the PROPORTION of the number of bedrooms in these person house,

I find a mistake in my introduction, so I will rewrite it:

The second chart gives information about how many bedrooms each one-households had in the same year.

i just decide to write an overview and an introduction.

The part chart given illustrates the percentages between distinct age groups of males and female who had single lives in UK in 2011, while the second pie chart shows the number of bedrooms which an individual person used in households in 2011.
Overall, it can be clearly seen that the age group (35-49) was the highest group and it accounted for roughly 65 percent, however the number of people who were o 85 and over decided to live only just nearly 25 percent. While, people who chose to live in five or more bedrooms were the lowest, just 1.4 percent, and compared to people who lived in 2 bedrooms were the top, about 35, 4 percent.

Here is mine. Hope to see your feedback, Simon.

The bar chart illustrates the percentage of English male and female of different age groups who were living in one-person families in 2011. The pie chart indicates the information of these families in term of how many bedrooms they had.
It is clear that the proportion of male living alone was higher than that of female in young groups, but the contrast was true when people get older. Overall, the majority of one-person households in England had no more than three bedrooms.
In the bar chart, the number of male living alone dominated that of the female in young groups, especially in the group of age 35-49, about 65% of male compared to 36% of female. In contrast, the percentage of one female family rose rapidly and became the dominance at aging groups. The largest difference between two sexes was belong to the group of 85 and over, about 22 % for male and 78% for male. In average, however, these figures were not too much different, about 48 % for the former and 52% for the later.
In the pie chart, we can see that 35.4% of England one-person household had 2 bedrooms. The figures of families having one bedroom and three bedrooms were approximately equal, at 28% and 29.8 % respectively. Although the figure of households having 4 bedrooms was only 5.3%, that of households owning 5 or more bedrooms even was smaller, just 1.4%.

The graph below depicts the ratio of male and females living their livelihood alone at different stages of life using no of bedrooms in year 2011.
The bar chart clearly shows that female above the 75 tend to live alone as compared to their male counterparts that is around 70 % of the women were living as a single, in 2011 .On contrary , males during their middle adulthood that is from the age of 25-49 almost 65 % of them were living separately. While it also shows that during their teenage till middle age that is till the age of 49 tend to live alone. Consequently, during the age of 50s almost equal number of males and female were living separately.
While on the other hand as they get older female from the age of 65 and above outnumbered the males which are at the age of 85 and above nearly 85 % of them were alone.
Considering the second Pie chart most of them tend to live in 2 bedroom apartment that is 35.4 % while the numbers are almost equally shared among people living in one bedroom and 3 rooms that is 28-29 %. While only 1.4 % of the single male and female occupied a 5 bedroom house.
It has been clear from the graph that in the year 2011 English men and women use to live in a 3 bedroom flat alone which is slightly lower than people opting to take a 2 or one bedroom flat that is only 6 % of the men and women.


The bar chart depicts percentage of men and women who lived alone in England in the year 2011 with respect to different age groups. The pie chart shows the bedrooms occupied by a single person during the same year.
if we focus on the bar chart, we can clearly see that the English men in their early ages have relatively high percentages in contrast with the english women, however this trend tend to decrease when they reached the age group 50-64 and continued to decreased. the percentage for english women who were living alone increase in the later ages of their lives, it was maximum in the age group 65-74 and continued to increase in the later phase of their lives.
The pie chart depicts that the sigle-household occupied 2 bedrooms house/flat with the highest percentage of 35.4%. The percentages for 1 and 3 bedrooms were 28% and 29.8% respectively.
The charts also convey information that young men loved to live independently for the growth of their personality and career and old women were left alone for different reasons.

Sir first of all thanku so much for your great work.... Plz tell me what is the right way to write task 1 if we take only one graph or pie chart ??? And if we get two charts ? How what to write in body 1amd2 and what to write in conclusion ??? Plz help me someone

Here is my first post in this site, hope to receive a feedback from you Simon. Your work here is very helpful for me. Thanks very very much.

"The two charts review the data about the proportion of English population in different ages and genders living alone in 2011 and the number of bedrooms in one-person households in the same year.

In general, there were more female than male who lived alone with just around 5% larger. This percentage rate changed remarkably in different groups of age. The most difference was in the oldest group, 85 and over, which was nearly three times larger for women (76% compare with 24%). Reversely, the figure of younger men in middle age, 35-49, who chose a lonely life is much more dominant (65% : 35%). But there was a balance in the 50-64 year-old group.

Inspire of living alone, more than 35% of those people had 2 bedrooms in their house. There also was nearly 30% having 3 bedrooms which was even larger than the rate of those who had only 1 bedroom (28%). Beside, there still was a small proportion (1.4%) whose house consisted of up to 5 or more beds.

To sum up, there were more young male than female adults from 16-49 years old choosing a lonely life and there were much more elderly women than men living alone in England in 2011. Those people had a preference of having a house with 2 or 3 bedrooms."
