As an overall trend, the graph shows an overall increase in the ratio of senior citizens in all three countries, but in 2040, Japan will have the highest ratio of old population.

In the beginning, in 1940, the percentage of older people in the USA was about 9%, the highest among the three countries. It was just 5% in Japan in the same year and around 7% in Sweden. After two decades, this ratio in Japan decreased by over 1% while it increased remarkably both in the USA and Sweden. In 2018, almost one in every five Swedish was over 64 years old while this ratio was below 15% in the USA and just around 7% in Japan.

It is projected that in 2040, exactly 2 decades from now, Japan will have the highest proportion of the elderly population which will be around 27%. At that time, one in every four Swedish citizens will be over 64 and finally, the ratio of American elderly population will be nearly 23%. ]]>

Summarise the information by selecting and reporting the main feature and make comparisons where relevant.

Answer:
The graph illustrates data about the percentage of the population aged 65 and over in the USA, Sweden, Japan over the century between 1940 and 2040.

Overall, what stands out from the graph is that there were considerable upward trends in the proportion of the population in all of the countries.

Looking at details, as regards the percentage of the aged population in Sweden that started at around 7% in 1940, began to increase with some fluctuations, and is projected to finish at about 25% in 2040. We can see that, the proportion of the population aged 65 and over in the USA was just under 10% in 1960, the highest of the given three countries, will also have around 23% aged people in 2040.

By contrast, the figure for elderly people in Japan was the lowest in 1940 but with time, it saw a gradual increase. After the year 2030, it is estimated that it will rise dramatically between 2030 and 2040, and then have the highest proportion of old people, among the three countries.]]>

Overall, it is clear that till 1990 the proportion of aged people in the USA was higher than that of Japan and Sweden. After 2000, this ratio in Sweden went higher than that of the USA and Japan. It is projected that the Japanese elderly population will rise dramatically in coming decades.

In details, around 9% population in the USA was 65 or older in 1940. This ratio increased to 15% after four decades but after 1990, it declined by 1% and remained stable. It is estimated that around 23% citizens in the USA will be either 65 or older in 2040. The percentage of Swedish elder people was 7% in 1940, and it rose gradually and exceeded the USA's proportion of senior citizens in 1990. In 2040, one if every five Swedish would be 65 or older. Finally, 5% Japanese were 65 or above in 1940 and the ratio declined and remained stable between 1960 and 1985. It soared by 2% afterwards and then climbed steadily. It is predicted that more than one-quarter Japanese population would be older citizens in 2040 and this ratio would be higher than that of the USA and Sweden.]]>

The provided line graph compares the proportion of elderly people from 1940 and gives projection till 2040 in three different countries, namely - the USA, Sweden and Japan.

Generally speaking, the percentage of senior citizens who are over 64 years old would increase significantly in these countries and Japan will witness a dramatic expansion in its percentage of the elderly population.

Initially, Sweden and the USA had approximately 7% and 9% of the elderly population respectively in 1940. Starting from 2000, both countries witnessed an upward trend in their ratio of seniors and it reached to about 15% in this year with some minor fluctuations. Japan, on the other hand, had only 5% elderly population in 1940 and this percentage remained almost the same in 2000 with some fluctuations in the previous years. The percentages of elderly population in these three countries, in recent years, are 20% (Sweden), 14% (the USA) and 7% (Japan). Afterwards, from 2000 all three countries expect to witness a rapid increase in their elderly population and make a new peak. In the following three decades, there will be a significant rise in ageing in each of the three countries. Japan will reach the highest level, which will be more than 25% and the USA and Sweden will be slightly below this, at 23% and 25% respectively.]]>

The provided line graph illustrates the percentages of elderly people aged 65 and over from 1940 and gives projection till the year 2040 in three different countries, namely - the USA, Sweden and Japan.

As is obvious in the given illustration, the percentages of the senior citizens, who are over 64 years old, would grow significantly in these countries and Japanese will witness a dramatic increase in their percentages of the elderly population.

To begin with, Sweden and the USA had approximately 7% and 9% elderly population, respectively in 1940. Till 2000 both countries witnessed an upward trend of their senior citizen's percentages and it reached to about 15% in this year with some minor fluctuations. Japan, on the other hand, had only 5% elderly population in 1940 and this percentage remained almost the same in 2000 with some fluctuations in the previous years. The percentages of aged population in these three countries in recent years are 20% (Sweden), 14% (the USA) and 7% (Japan).

Interestingly, these percentages are projected to grow very swiftly in the future, and in 2040, Japan will have the biggest percentage of elderly, more than 27%. In this year, a person out of four in Sweden will be a senior citizen and in the USA's elderly population percentage will increase to approximately 23%.]]>

Overall, the proportion of older people will increase remarkably after the year 2020 and Japan will have the highest percentage of that older population.

As is presented as a census of a perusal in provided illustration, Japan, Sweden and the USA had around 5%, 7% and 9% older population respectively in 1940. The proportion of older people who are over 64 years old decreased slightly until 1960 in Japan and met 3% as nadir and remained stable at that percentage until 1990. After 2030, this ratio is predicted to increase dramatically and in 2040, more than 26% Japanese will be older than 64 years. In 2040 Japan will have the highest percentage of older people among the three given countries. In the USA and Sweden, percentages of older generation ascended simultaneously until 2000. After that ratio of older people in the USA is fixed almost until 2020 but Sweden's portion rose after 2000 and will surplus the USA's older generation eventually. In 2040 the USA and Sweden will have 23 and 25% older people as peak respectively.]]>
