A glance at the graph given reveals some striking information about how many transports per thousand people owned in China in a period of twelve years.
Overall, it can be seen that from the figures that are shown, there is only a single trend which is upward.
In the first six years of the period, the number of vehicles that every thousand people owned witnessed a considerable growth of approximately 650, from a mere 250 vehicles in 1987 to nearly one thousand in 1993. We can see that the feature respectively rose in the first four years but started to slow down in 1991. However, two years after that, the proportion began to experience a steady climb, every two years, the number of transports increased about one thousand. In the middle year of the twelve-year period, the number was in the vicinity of 1000 and in the last year of the period, 1999, it reached a peak at more than 4000.
It is interesting to note that in a mere around one dozen of years, the number of vehicles per thousand people changed significantly, a growth of approximately four thousand transports.
