Q15. Task 1 - Graph (Solved) (Vertical bar)

The vertical bar chart shows the changes in the fertility rate of women in six Gulf countries – Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Oman, Qatar, Kuwait and Bahrain between 1990 and 2000. The data is calibrated in births per woman.

Firstly, in the ten year period, there was a decline in the number of births per woman in all countries. The biggest declines were in two countries which had low fertility rates at the start of the decade, Bahrain and the UAE.

Moving further, Fertility rates varied greatly between the six countries. Oman and Saudi Arabia had the highest rates, with over seven births per woman in 1990. This compared with around 4 births per woman in Bahrain and the UAE, and just 3.75 in Kuwait

Stating further, by 2000, the rate had fallen below three births per woman in Kuwait, Bahrain and the UAE, with a drop of over 25% in a decade in the UAE. However, in Saudi Arabia and Oman, the rates fell by just 20%, from 7.0 to 5.5.

Overall, there were major decreases in birth rates in all countries and Oman and Saudi Arabia had the highest fertility rate in both years.
