The statistics (measured as a percentage) of people’s drinking and buying habits on coffee and tea in five Australian cities from a survey is indicated by this bar chart.
To begin with, 44% residents in Sydney bought fresh coffee in last 4 weeks, a bit higher than Melbourne (43%) and Hobart (38%) respectively. Nearly 35% of people living in Adelaide did the same thing, slightly more than Brisbane (34%).
Additionally, in terms of those who bought instant coffee in last 4 weeks, figures of all five cities are higher than 45%, with Hobart accounting for the highest proportion at 54%, followed by Brisbane (53%), Adelaide (50%), Melbourne (48%) and Sydney (46%) in a decreasing order.
More interestingly, as for people who went to a café for coffee or tea in last 4 weeks,
4proportions of 4 cities are more than a half, with Melbourne occupying the largest percentage at 64%, Hobart 63%, Sydney 61%, and Brisbane a little more than 55%. Meanwhile, the figure of Adelaide is a slightly lower than 50%.
In summary, in 4 cities excluding Adelaide, the most popular habit is going to a café for coffee or tea since related figures are noticeably higher than the other two options. In the meantime, in Adelaide instant coffee is prevalent because almost half local people chose it during last 4 weeks. In contrast, purchasing fresh coffee is the last choice for people in all these 5 cities.
(an example of a very good answer from C9 T2) The chart shows the time spent by UK residents on different types of telephone calls between 1995 and 2002.
Local fixed line calls were the highest throughout the period, rising from 72 billion minutes in 1995 to just under 90 billion in 1998. After peaking at 90 billion the following year, these calls had fallen back to the 1995 figure by 2002.
National and international fixed line calls grew steadily from 38 billion to 61 billion at the end of the period in question, though the growth slowed over the last two years.
There was a dramatic increase in mobile calls from 2 billion to 46 billion minutes. This rise was particularly noticeable between 1999 and 2002, during which time the use of mobile phone tripled.
To sum up, although local fixed line calls were still the most popular in 2002, the gap between the three categories had narrowed considerably over the second half of the period in question.
