Sample Answer 1:
The chart compares the number of people (in thousands) having heart attacks per year in the USA based on their age and gender. As a general trend, it is observed that more men suffer from heart attacks compared to women in all age groups.
It is seen in the chart that risk of having a heart attack among men increases manyfold after the age of 45. As compared to 123,000 men having a heart attack in the age group of 29-44, there are 424,000 and 440,000 men who suffer from heart attacks in the age group of 45-64 and 65+ respectively. Only 3000 women suffer from heart attacks under the age of 45. The risk increases in the age group of 45-64 and reaches almost the similar rate as of men after the age of 65.
In summary, men are at a greater risk of having heart attacks in all age groups and the risk increases for both men and women after the age of 65.

Sample Answer 2:
The given chart shows data on the number of the US people who suffer from heart attack dividing them in three age groups. As is observed from the given information, men have more heart attack rates than female and both men and women over 65 years old are prone to heart attack than younger age groups.
Men have more heart attach rates than women in all age groups. Firstly, 123 thousand men suffer from heart attacks compared to the 3 thousand female who fall under the 29 to 44 age group. Again, among the 45 to 64 years group, more than 400 thousand men have had heart attacks and this number is almost three times higher than the rate among female of this age group. Finally, US people over 65 years old suffer from heart attacks more than other two age groups and that exceeds 300 thousand for female and 400 thousand for men. Women in 65+ age group suffer from heart attacks significantly more than other age groups.
In conclusion, more American men suffer from heart attacks than women and this rate is higher among the people over 65 years old.
