Moreover, you can’t so this here since one is increasing and the other is decreasing.)
Sample sentence: The unemployment (subject of question) among females of England fell (verb) from 6.8 percent (numbers) in 2013 (years) to 6.5 percent (numbers) in 2014 (years), while that (subject of question) of Scotland increased (verb) from 6.1 percent (numbers ) to 6.7 percent (numbers) during this period (years).
