The line graphs illustrate the production and demand for steel in million tonnes and the number of workers employed in the steel industry in the UK in 2010.
Demand for steel in January was 2000 million tonnes whereas, the amount produced was twice the number. A rise is seen in demand and production of steel by 1000 million tonnes in April. Although the demand for steel has fluctuating outcomes such as incline between April and August, a drop in August, the amount of steel produced remained steady and then declined in August. After a spike in the months between August and December by roughly 1000 million tonnes in demand and 2000 million tonnes of production, a dramatic drop is seen in the amount of steel produced from 5000 million tonnes to 1000 million tonnes. A slight drop in demand for steel is also seen from 2500 million tonnes to 0 million tonnes by September. But it exceeds to 2000 million tonnes by December.
On the other hand, the number of workers employed remains as high as 5000 to as low as 1000 in January and December respectively. Between January to December, a sharp fall of workers is seen in March(nearly) from 5500 to 3000 and remained saturated throughout April. From April to August a fluctuation can be seen in the number and by August the number of workers employed reached nearly 3500. By December, a recession is seen from 3500 to 1000 workers employed which was the lowest in the year.
