The table shows the number of people in Canada in each earning level.
Summarise the information by selecting and reporting the main features, and make comparisons where relevant.
Write at least 150 words.
The table details income levels in Canada and how many citizens were included in each income bracket from 2005 to 2009.
In 2005, the number of people in each income level reduced the higher the income, with nearly 10 million earning $20,000 or less, falling to only slightly above one third of a million earning over $150,000.
By 2006, the pattern changed as the number of people with the lowest income fell by nearly one quarter, whereas those earning between $20,000 and $50,000 increased by almost one million and those in the next income level increased dramatically to over 7 million. There was also an increase in the number of people in the highest income bracket, which rose by over 50,000.
In 2007, the largest increase in numbers was observed in those earning between $50,000 and $100,000, and in 2008 and 2009, figures remained relatively stable, with those earning between $20,000 and $50,000 representing the majority.
In sum, there were variations in the number of people in each income level.
