Note: Proportion = (Number of men in comparison to women) OR (number of women in comparison to men).

The given bar chart presents information about the fraction/ proportion/ ratio of males and females of different age groups in Wuawua Land in the year 2016. The pie-chart depicts data regarding the percentage of one-person homes with one, two, three, and four and above rooms.

The proportion of males living alone is maximum in the age group 34 to 49 years, while that of females is highest in the age group 85 years and above. The number of men and women are equal only in the age group of 50 to 64 years. Evidently, the number of men in comparison to women increases from age group 15-24 to 35-49. Thereafter, the proportion of men falls. Cumulatively, for all age groups, the number of men living alone is slightly less than the number of women.

The pie-chart clearly shows that the number of single people, both men and women, living alone in a one-room house is the highest. People living alone in a two room house constitute 29 percent while those living in a three-room house constitute about 24 percent. Those living in a four-room or above house are only 2 percent.
