The table below gives information on consumer spending on different items in five different countries in 2002.

Summarise the information by selecting and reporting the main features and make comparisons where relevant.

Turkey’s consumer expenditure on Food, Drinks and Tobacco was the greatest, accounting for 32.14%. This was closely followed by Ireland with 28.91%. The consumers in Sweden spent the least (5.77%) in this sector while Italian and Spanish consumers spent 16.36% and 18.80% respectively.

The percentage spent on Clothing and Footwear was considerably lower at less than 10% for all countries. Italy’s expenditure stood at 9% while Ireland, Turkey and Spain showed similar spending habits ranging between 6.43% and 6.63%. Once again Sweden had the lowest percentage in this sector.
