    Male smokers greatly outnumbered females in the period between 1950’s and 1990’s. [Crack IELTS with Rob] However, the number of smoking males decreased by almost half, that of the females almost doubled. A particular change occurred in the decade between the 80’s and the 90’s.


    Between the 1950s and the 1980s, the number of males who smoke declined slowly but steadily from 79% to 73%. [Crack IELTS with Rob] A sharp change occurred, on the other hand, in the period between the 1980s and the 1990s the number of male smokers fell from 73% to only 42%.


    - 50s~60s up slightly from 17% to 18%

    - 60s~70s doubled to 38%

    - 70s~80s slight increase to 42%

    - 80s~90s considerable decline to 29%


    As far as female smokers are concerned, whereas their percentage during the 50’s and the 60’s was 17 and 18 respectively, it doubled to 38% in the 70’s and continued increasing slightly into the 80’s with 42%. [Crack IELTS with Rob] As was the case with males, though, a dramatic change occurred between the 80’s and the 90’s as the percentage fell by about 13 points to 29%.


    While males continue outnumbering females when it comes to smoking, the gap is narrowing and the percentage of smokers in the general population is diminishing.
