The table compares the expense ratios of grown up and younger English on four items proportionate to their earning in 2005. Overall, adult UK residents spent most percentages of their income on food and electronic devices while children’s expenditure was mostly for music and video.
To illustrate, an average adult English spent over one-fourth of the income on food in 2005 while 15 percent of the income went on purchasing electronic devices. Their spending on music and video were quite low, only 4% and 2% respectively. Interestingly, men spent 21% of their earning on electronic gadgets, which was exactly treble than that of women. However, women spent more on food and slightly higher on music. But their expenditure on videos was almost ignorable proportionate to their income.
Children, on the other hand, spent only around one-tenth of their income on food while a large ratio on music and electronic tools, 41 and 35 percentages consecutively. Youngsters expense proportion on video was much higher than that of adults, more than 7 times to be more precise. Among those children, boys spent most proportion of their income on video and electronics, 20 and 28 percentages sequentially, while girls preferred more ratio on food and music.
