The given pie charts illustrate the percentages of staff employed by age in the public sector in Canada between 2010 and 2015. Overall, as can be seen from the charts, while the proportion of those employed in their 20s and 40s increased, the opposite for other age groups, particularly the over 50s fell. In detail, firstly in the younger age groups, from 2010 to 2015, the employment of workers under 21 dropped from 18% to 10%. However, the total number of workers under 30 augmented in light of the fact that of the surge in the employment of 21-30 year-olds, which accounted for 25% to 40%. Likewise, the number of staff of age 41-50 saw the greatest climb, which was more than doubled between 14% in 2010 and 30% in 2015. In contrast to this, other age groups saw quite significant falls in employment. For example, in the 31-40 age group, a plummet in the proportion of the staff employed figure from 30% in 2010 to merely 8% by 2015, which represented a substantial drop of more than 70% in relative terms. Whereas, the proportion of employees aged over the 50s recruited saw a decrease, though not by quite consequently much, standing at 13% in 2010 and 12% in 2015. To conclude, the percentage of the 21-30 and 41-50 groups employed rose, the opposite was true for the three remaining groups – under 21, 31-40, and over 50.
