The three bar charts present an overview of how the levels of participation were in education and science in two types of (developing and industrial) countries in the selected years 1980 and 1990.
It is clear from the first chart that there was a rise in average years of schooling in both developing and industrialised countries from 1980 to 1990. Developing countries saw a significant rise in schooling from 2.3 years in 1980 to 2.7 years in 1990. Similarly, the figure for years of schooling in industrialised countries also increased by nearly 1 year.
Scientists and technicians in industrialised countries comprised higher rate (41 per 1000 people) compared to developing countries’ figure (10 per 1000 people) in 1980. After a decade, the number of scientists and technicians in industrialised countries multiplied to 70 (per 1000 people) simultaneously this figure for developing countries rose gradually to 18 per 1000 people.
The amount of money spent on Research & Development in industrialised countries doubled from 160 billion $ in 1980 to 320 billion $ in 1990. Meanwhile, for developing countries the pattern is reversed, declining from 50 billion $ in 1980 to 20 billion $ in 1990.
Overall, the participation of industrialised countries in education and science was much higher in all the three areas than industrialised countries over the given period.
Three charts give information about the average years of schooling and the levels of participation in education and science. While third chart revels the amount of money was spent on research and development in developing and industrialized countries between 1980 and 1990.
As an overall trend it clearly seen that industrialized countries were much better in all three sections by comparing to developing countries.
In 1980, the average year of schooling in industrialized countries was approximately three times larger than developing countries (8 years). After decade, this number increased by 3 years. While in1990, developing countries’ number reached at 3 years. In contrast, in industrialized countries the figure of participants in education almost doubled (70 people) than in 1980. However, this pattern for developing countries accounted for 10 people and unchanged until 1990. While in 1980, industrialized countries spent most of their money on research and development. It made up $150 billions and it was three times larger by comparing to developing countries. After decade, this number climbed significantly by $200 billion. But developing countries’ figure remained steady at around $50 billions during the whole period.
