Rate of smoking in men and women

  Write a report for a university lecturer describing theinformation in the graph below.
The graph compares the rate of smoking in men and women in Someland between the years 1960 and 2000. It can be clearlyseen that the rate of smoking for both men and women is currently declining and that fewer women have smoked throughout the period. 

In 1960, 600 men in every 1,000 was smoking. This numberdecreased gradually to 500 by 1974 and continued to decreasebut more steeply to 250 in 2000. In contrast, the rate of smoking in women in 1960 was very low at only 80 in every1,000. By 1968 this increased to 170, and increased again butmore steeply to 320 in 1977. The rate of female smokers thenremained stable at 320 until 1984 at which point the figuresbegan to decline and had dropped to 200 by 2000. 

In conclusion we can see that the rate of smoking in mendropped throughout the whole period but was always at ahigher level than the female figures. The rate of smoking inwomen increased until 1977 but then decreased for the rest of the period.
