Ten Practice Questions for Advanced Data Handling Tests
Which region had the highest proportion of females in 2009?
Answer: Scotland. To work out the percentage of females in (for example) England, the sum would be 24,676.4 x 100 ÷ 52.234 = 50.75. You work out the percentages for the other countries in a very similar way. The percentages are England: 50.75%; Scotland: 51.57%; Wales: 51.14%; Northern Ireland: 50.89%.
