The two pie charts above give information about the change of the spending on 6 fundamental aspects of life in U.S from 1966 to 1996.
It is noticeable that the proportion of 3 parts,namely Cars,Restaurants and Computers,increased during the period.Specifically,the expenditure on Cars rose sharply from 23%to 45%,becoming the largest in 1996.Similarly,the percentage of Restaurants also doubled.In addition,Computers,which took up the smallest proportion only at 1%in American budget of 1966,soared up by 10 times to 10%by 1996.
For the rest 3 areas,however,the 3-decade period saw an opposite downward-trend.For example,in terms of Food which played a dominant role in consumption in 1966,there was a slump from 44%to only 14%.This was followed by Patrol and Furniture,in both of which a slight ｄｒｏｐ was found.In comparison,Books cost least money in 1996,which amounted to merely 1%in total,only one-sixth of relevant spending in 1966.
In conclusion,increased amounts spent on cars,computers,and eating out were made up for by drops in expenditure on food and books.
