A glance at the table provided reveals people’s trend in consuming different types of grocery from five nations in 2002. Dietary items’ consumption, overall, was the highest amount while this figure for entertainment and training is the lowest.
Food, drinks and tobacco were the most consumed commodity. Therein, Turkish citizens held the first rank of consumers, which accounted for over 32 percent. The smallest number belonged to people from Sweden. Their percentage was nearly a half of Turkish, which was only 16 percent.
On the contrary, wearing and mental items were much less needed than dietary one, despite insignificant differentials between the two categories. Italians spent most money on clothing and footwear. They represented a percentage of exactly nine while just over five percent of Swedish consumers bought those.
Statistics showed that very few people used pleasure and education goods in all the five countries. Spanish inhabitants’ consumption constituted the lowest number, which was no more than two percent. The highest figure again went to Turkey which accounted for over four percent.
