The line graph presents data on vehicle theft cases in Great Britain, Sweden, France and Canada from 1990 to 1999. As is obvious, car thefts in Great Britain were higher than that of other countries while this rate noticeably increased in Sweden.
According to the diagram, roughly 17 transportations in every thousand were stolen in the Great Britain in 1990 while this rate was between 6 to 8 per thousand in France, Canada and Sweden. Automobile embezzlement in Great Britain steadily climbed till 1993 at which point 2% cars were reported abducted. With some minor fluctuations, car lifting rates in France and Canada remained almost constant throughout the years. In contrast, carrier stealing rate in Sweden kept on soaring and in 1995 this proportion reached as high as 10 in every thousand vehicles. Motor vehicle theft in Great Britain sharply declined in 1994 but grew again till 1997 to strike 2% again. Afterwards, car theft incidents in Great Britain firmly declined between 1997 and 1999 when it actually increased in Sweden. Finally, in 1999, almost 1.5% automobiles in Great Britain and Sweden were reported stolen while it was almost one-third of that in France and Canada.
