The line graph illustrates the birth rates in two countries including China and the USA and compares how these rates changed from 1920 to 2000.
Overall, as can be seen from the chart, there were downward trends in birth rates of both nations over the period of 80 years. Although they were similar in term of a general decline, the birth rate of USA was higher than that of China in most years.
In detail, the China birth rate fluctuated from 10% to 15% in the 1920 to 1935 period before falling rapidly to 5% from 1940 to 1945. In 1950, this rate rose significantly and reached to exactly 20% , which was the highest point of the whole line graph. By contrast, 5 years later, the birth rate in China dropped sharply by above 10%, decreasing to around 2% in 2000.
Over the same period, the birth rate of the USA varied few significantly than that of China, remained above 10%. However, 1945 saw a rapid decline to 5% in the US birth rate, which dramatic increased to the peak of the line graph, 15% in 1950. Throughout the remainder of the period, the figure of the USA reduced steadily to approximately 7% by the year 2000.
