The bar chart reveals the percentages of statistic rates a happiness of people in their life based on married and unmarried in the USA and also effect children in a family. it is evident from the information that, the married couple have the highest rates while married couple both of children or not in family have a similar rates.

Looking detail on the data, all ages married groups from teenager to adult over 65 ages have similar patterns rates, in which group 18-29 ages is the highest rate of 45 percent compare the others group have a range around 2- 4 percent. Otherwise, based on not married in the US citizen below 64 ages, averages have a half of total percentages than the married couple. In addition, there are anomaly data which 34 percent group aged 65 and over say happiness in their life.

Turning to other data, most of the American couple say that have a child below 18 and over 18 ages happy in their life around 41 to 44 percent. However, That averages rates also have similar rate than people without children in their family at 43 percent.


Throughout history, people have always been interested in fashion When you read magazines these days, you see many advertisements for the latest fashions, and some of these are very expensive. So, is this a good thing?

Some people say that prices should be lower in shops, and I can understand their point of view. Before youngsters start work, they depend on their parents for money. Although many parents are not wealthy, they are often pressurised into buying things like designer jeans for their children After they have started earning money, young adults can still find it hard to afford fashionable clothes because they are saving up for other items.

However, there are other people who say they are happy to pay for designer clothes Teenagers look forward to doing this when they have their own income. Celebrities have plenty of money, so they might say that they do not worry about how much clothes cost They know they need to look after their image while they are famous. Surely fashion designers would also argue that the cost is fine According to people in the fashion business, you cannot criticise until you have seen how hard if is to be original and set new trends. 

Personally, 1 think the question depends on how important fashion is to you. if you are not interested in fashion, you needn’t spend a lot of money because these days there are many clothes shops around. On the other hand, if you like to look good, you have to buy fewer clothes and pay more money for them.
