Infant Mortality & Life Expectancy

Sample Answer:
The provided bar graph shows the health and education related expenses of UAE from 1970 to 1992 and the line graph presents data on the life expectancy and infant mortality rates of UAE for the same period of time.

As is observed from the bar graph, in 1985 10% of UAE GDP was for education and about 8% was for health care. After 5 years, the expenses on health care sector reduced slightly (by 1%) while the expenses on education increased by 4%. Finally in 1993, the expenses on health sector increased to 10% of total GDP while the expenses in education increased only by 1-2%.

According to the line graph, life expectancy in 1970 in UAE was 60 years while infant mortality was very high (70 per 1000 infant). After 22 years in 1992, life expectancy in UAE improved and reached to over 70 years while the mortality rate per 1000 infant reduced to 20. This shows the improvement of life expectancy and less infant mortality rate in UAE which is related to the expenses made in education and health care system.
