Cambridge IELTS 11 Task 1 Answer | Describing information in a table & chart

The table and chart above provide information regarding visitor numbers to the Ashdown Museum and the level of satisfaction experienced, according to a visitor survey, for two different periods of time: pre- and post-renovation of the museum.

Overall, it can be seen from the table that the total number of visitors to the museum increased considerably by the end of the year following the renovations, increasing to 92,000 from 74,000 in the year prior to the renovations.

More specifically, and importantly, the overall level of satisfaction reported by visitors to the museum increased following the renovations. The number of visitors surveyed post-renovations who reported that they were very satisfied with their visit increased from 15 to 35; more than doubling. Those who felt that their visit had been satisfactory also increased, from 30 to 40. Notably, there was a significant reduction in the number of visitors who considered their visit to have been unsatisfactory, dropping from 40 to only 15; the single largest change in the visitor survey results. The number of visitors who felt very dissatisfied with their visit to the museum also decreased by 50%, from 10 to 5. The number of non-responses to the visitor survey remained unchanged, at 5.

In general, the data provided clearly illustrates the positive impact the museum renovation project had on the level of satisfaction experienced by museum visitors.
