Cinema visits for all age of groups
Write at least 150 words.
The table illustrates the percentage of Australians going to the cinema and their frequency from 1994 to 2002, and the line graph presents how many visits were made according to age group.
It is clear that the percentage of cinema attendants increased, while the average number of visits decreased over the period shown. Additionally, all age groups witnessed fluctuations in their figures, and 14-to 24-year-olds were the most frequent cinema visitors.
In 1994, about 67% of the total population went to cinema with about 10.7 times a year. This attendance increased to 72% two years later and then remained stable until 2002, despite a fall of 2% from 1998 to 2000. Meanwhile, the average frequency peak at 11.3 times annually in 1996, but then it stabilized at around 8.3 times.
Initially, the youngest group went to the cinema 12 times yearly, followed by 10 times of those aged 25 to 34. In contrast, the figure for the oldest group was lowest, at only 8 times per year. In 1996, the figures for all groups rose by about 1 time before decreasing by nearly 5 times in 1998. After that, the quantity of visits of each group grew slightly but the most regular visits still belonged to the youngest group, with about 10 times.
