The bar chart shows the percentage of British adults who donate to charity in two time periods.
In 1990, 42% of 36-50 year olds give money to charity. This is the greatest percentage on the chart. A little over 10% less is given by the next age category (51-56). About 30% of the 26-35 and >65 offer money to charity while only 17% of the youngest age group do so.
Ten years later, there is an increase in the percentage of those aged 51-65 contributing, resulting in almost 40% in this age group. 35% of 36-50 and >65 donate to charities in 2010. 24% of the 26-35 year olds give to charity which is 7% less than 10 years earlier. Finally, only 7% of those aged 18-25 donate money. This is the lowest percentage on the chart.
As we can see, in 1990 it was mostly the 36-50 category that gave a monetary contribution while in 2010 it was mostly the 51-65 year olds who gave money to charity. Fewer members of the youngest age group donated in both years.
