Task 1: The graphs below give information about the value changes and employment status in the UK steel industry between 1970 and 2000.
Summarize the information by selecting and reporting the main features, and make comparisons where relevant.
The charts below provide a visual summary of the job prospect and supply-demand of the United Kingdom’s steel manufacturing industry between 1970 and 2000.
Overall, it can be seen that the demand and production of steel in the UK were much higher at the start of the period than they were at the end. On the contrary, the trend for steel import started low and gradually increased.
Firstly, in 1970, both demand and production were particularly high, sitting at 200,000 and roughly 160,000 respectively. For the next 20 years, production had decreased to a level of approximately 90,000 before declining slightly to around 80,000. During that same period, demand also fell to 100,000. Steel import began at nearly zero; however, by the 1990’s, it had been up to 50,000, finally ending at just under 70,000.
Turning into the second chart, employment in the steel industry was at 50,000 in 1970. However, this quickly began to decrease. By 1980, this figure had been down to 40,000, and ten years later it was halved. At the end of the period, the employment rate was all the way down to roughly 16,000.
