The graph shows data on the rate of fertilizing in China and US from 1920
to 2000. Overall, there was a downward trend of this rate in two countries
over the period.
It can be seen that the rate of US had a fluctuation on 20 years before
reaching the lowest point at 5% in 1945. However, there was a recovery of
birth rate of US in 1950 when this rate increased sharply to 15%. And
finally, from 1950 to 2000, the percentage of birth had a steady decline
from 15% to about 7.5%.
For the rate of birth in China, the trend of the change was as same as that
in US. It started with a variation from 1920 and then fell down to 5% in
1945. However, , the recovery’s percentage of birth was 20% in 1950,
highest on the whole period. After 1950, the rate in China fell more
dramatically and quickly than that in US when decreasing from 20% to 2.5%.
