The percentage of expenditure shares of food, housing, transportation, health care and clothing in the four countries in 2009 are depicted by the bar graph.
Overall, there was a maximum percentile of housing, food and transportation rather than health care and clothing expenses spent by four regions in the given year.
In Japan, consumers spent around 23% of their total expenditure on food in 2009. The United States has the second-highest share of more than 20%. While Canada, with 15% and the United States, with 14%, had the lowest food expenditure share. Despite this, the USA had the highest housing expenditure share, more than one-fourth of total expenditure in 2009. The United Kingdom and Japan followed 24% and 22%, respectively. Canada had the lowest housing share, just above one-fifth. By contrast, Canada had the largest transportation share of all four countries at 20%.
Moving on to health care, the United States’s expenses were approximately 8%, whereas Canada had paid out at around 4%. A minor difference was 2% of expenditure shares between the UK and Japan. In contrast, the share of expenses on clothing was 4% and 6% in the USA and Canada, respectively. The difference in expenses between the UK and Japan was about 2%.
The given bar chart delineates information about the percentage of shares for food, housing, transportation, healthcare, and clothing in five distinct nations. The data has been calibrated in percentages.
Overall, it is evident that all countries spend the most money on accommodation, whereas the opposite could be seen in the case of health care.
To begin with, the inhabitants of the US spend the maximum amount on housing, which is 25%, followed by the UK, Japan, and Canada, whose figures are about 23%, 21%, and 20%, respectively. In contrast, the Japanese spend around 23% of their money on food, which is higher than that of other nationalities. UK residents spend one-fifth of their money on food, while it is less than 15% for the citizens of Canada and the US.
In regards to further information, Canadians spend one-fifth of their income on transportation, which is double that of Japan. Although healthcare costs, on the other hand, are not higher than 8% in all nations, they remain higher than those of clothing. Similarly, a slight difference of 2% is observed between the expenditure on clothing among five distinct nations.
