Writing Task 1 Revision – Sample Line Graph Essay on Population Growth

Essay (184 words):

The line graph describes how the population of India and China had changed from 2000 to the present time and predicted figures until 2050.

In 2000, the population of India stood at 1 billion, followed by a rise to just over 1.3 billion in 2020. In 2031, both the population of India and that of China are expected to equal 1.45 billion. Furthermore, from 2031 to 2050, the population of India is forecast to experience uninterrupted increase and reach its peak of nearly 1.6 billion in 2050.

As for China, in 2000, over 1.25 billion people called this country home. This figure is forecast to jump to about 1.45 billion in 2031, when the two lines intersect, and gradually decline to just below 1.4 billion in 2050. The graph, additionally, shows that from 2000 to 2031, the population of China will surpass that of India, while the opposite will happen from 2031 to the end of the period.

In conclusion, although the population of both countries is expected to grow over the 50-year period, the growth rate of India clearly outweighs that of China.
