The bar chart provides information about movie production in five different countries (labelled A-E) from 2007 to 2009.

Overall, country A had the highest number of films produced. It is also notable that while there was a decline in the figures for country A and D, the opposite was true for those of country B, C and E.

In 2007, around 86 films were made by country A. The figure remained unchanged one year later before slightly decreasing to exactly 80 films in 2009. Starting at about 15 movies in 2007, the number of films released by country D fell to just under 10 in 2008 and rose again to 12 in 2009.

However, the opposite trend could be seen in the figures for the other countries. Between 2007 and 2009, the number of movies made by country B witnessed a rise of 20 movies from 50 films to 70 films. Similarly, despite standing at only under 10 films in 2007, the number of movies made by country C underwent a gradual increase to 18 movies by 2009. As for country E, the figure only experienced a minimal rise from around 9 movies in 2007 to 11 in 2009.

These days many people feel that good health and well-being is essential to all people and therefore healthcare services should not be run by privately owned companies, whose main objective is to make profit. Personally, while I do agree with this statement, I also believe that private healthcare services do have many advantages.

Firstly, public hospitals in most countries are usually overcrowded and underfunded which can put a lot of pressure on doctors, nursing staff and patients to recover quickly so that more people can be treated. When people choose private healthcare services it can help to reduce the burden on the public system, and as a result can also help to reduce the amount of money required by the government for funding. In addition to this, those who choose to pay for private healthcare services will experience many benefits, such as the quality and speed of treatments, short waiting times for appointments and operations, and more private and comfortable facilities.

However, while there are a number of benefits to private healthcare, there are also a number of drawbacks. To begin with, private healthcare insurance is very costly and many people simply cannot afford it. In addition, private healthcare insurance is usually paid on a monthly basis, whether you use the system or not, and therefore many people pay thousands of dollars each year for private healthcare but never need to use the facilities or services. Many people consider this to be a waste of money. Furthermore, some people also argue that private healthcare services create inequality between citizens of a nation as only the wealthy can afford the best and quickest treatment available.

In conclusion, I believe that as long as governments do their best to provide a good standard of healthcare facilities and services for the general public, then private healthcare services can also exist and provide many advantages that will outweigh the disadvantages.
