Answer of the Bar Chart:
This bar chart illustrates the holiday accommodation selected by people in the UK in 2010.
Overall, it is possible to say that the English, Scottish, Northern and Welsh had very similar choices and hotels were the most popular type of accommodation.
In all four countries, around 50% people selected to stay in hotels. This percentage was highest in England with around 55%, which was two times more than the number of people (27%) who cooked for themselves and greater than the number of people(12%) who stayed in campsites.
The same pattern was found for the Scots and the Welsh. In each case, around 50% of holidaymakers took the hotels as their accommodation and with around 30% people went for self-catering apartments. The one exception was caravan holidays at 12%, which was more popular than camping holidays in Scotland. On the other hand, the opposite pattern was found in the Wales.
But the one country Northern Ireland shows a different pattern. In this country, over 30% of the people chose caravan which was more popular than self-catering accommodation and camping (both around 12%).
