The bar chart compares the number of men and women who studies further education either full time or part-time between the years 1970/71 and 1990/91 in Great Britain. It can clearly be seen that full-time education is more popular than part-time education for both men and women.
In 1970/71, one million men studied full-time education as opposed to nearly 700,000 women. The trend recorded a dip of nearly 20% for men in the following decade, but improved slightly than after. In contrast, there was a steady increase for women during 1980s and the number surpassed to the highest level in the following decade.
With regard to the part-time education enrolments, both men and women more or less the same number (200,000) throughout three decades barring the 1970s where men had the upper hand slightly than women.
Overall, the number of women for both studying full and part-time for further education increased at a decent pace after a moderate start in the seventies.
