  1. Different trends of British people spending on three kinds of music albums (Pop, Rock and classical music) demonstrated accordingly sex and 4 stages of ages in the three bar charts.

    Looking in sexuality category, more men paid for music recordings than women did. For Pop and Rock music, about 8% more of males purchased than the female while there was not a big gap in Classical music (only around 2-3%).

    Regard to types of music, we can obviously see the modern types (Pop and Rock) shared similar tendency that the range of 16-44 aged people were their fans (appropriately 25-35% in all three stages of ages). Among those, the people at aged 25-34 were the top purchasers with about 35% in both kinds, and the youth group chased closely as the second place at 30% for the two of them.

    Understandably, the elder people had great interest in classical music which fit with their soul and lifestyle (above 20% spent on this) while just about 10% of them paid for Pop and Rock. It is surprised that not the people in their brazen ages liked classical music after the elders but the mature people did with about 17% of them bought classical music albums (only 3% less than the elders).

    Generally, all 3 charts tell that the mature people (25-34 years old) paid the most for all 3 kinds of music with more than 80% in total (appropriately : 33% for Pop; 33% for Rock, and 17% for classical music). The second group who had high expenditure on music in general was the teenagers with totally about 62% buyers. Among this, 60% of them purchased Pop and Rock albums for it youthfulness. The elders invested less on music that the middle-age people counted for estimated 55% and the 45+ people were 40% as the least.
