Introduction

Task 2 Industrial Sectors In the UK there are many different types of business and they all do different things, some extract raw materials from the earth, some manufacture the raw materials into different products and others sell the final product or supply a service to the public. All these different businesses are put in to different sectors, and these sectors are called the primary sector, the secondary sector, and the tertiary sector. As time goes on technology changes and so do the sectors. Primary Sector The Primary sector is concerned with producing or obtaining raw materials. This can often mean extracting natural minerals or natural products. Industries in the primary sector include: * Farming and fishing, producing the basic foodstuffs needed by people * Forestry, producing the timbre that is used in making houses, furniture, paper and other items * Mining and allied industries, producing coal, oil and gas for heating and power, metals for construction and manufacturing goods, and stone for building Secondary Sector The secondary sector is mainly involved with something that is involved getting the apparatus for the business.

Middle

First of all most men were to do all the primary sector work for example farming in the 1970's was very popular job for a man in those days. Nowadays we see that women are starting to overtake the job of farming which men mostly did in the 1970's. Another reason for why there is less population of people decreasing in the primary sector is because there is more better technology coming out each year for example there is machinery that does all the farming for you. Machines that dig under to get the potatoes and all other kind of vegetables. Therefore you would not need a vast majority of people working in the primary sector. If we look at the secondary sector in the graph we can see that there has been a decline of secondary sectors over the past years. Secondary sectors are employees who actually make the product.

Conclusion

The reasons for this could be: - People want a job that is sitting down nowadays. Whereas in the 1970's people had to work anyhow and it was hard to get place like a tertiary sector in those days. Not many people were educated as today. Output Output is the total value of goods produced by a sector or industry. If a industry is expanding its contribution should be rising. The employment factor and output together give a good indication, of whether a sector is increasing or decreasing. People who are not good at figures may find statistics a problem. Basically it is a number of figures on a table, or graph showing the information on how well the sectors are doing. Trends in a industrial sector Sector 1989 1991 1993 1995 1997 Primary 7.19 7.16 7.02 6.84 6.35 Secondary 31.16 27.48 25.86 26.76 25.73 Tertiary 61.65 65.36 67.12 66.39 67.92 This graph is showing that the tertiary sector earns a lot more money then the other two sectors. The tertiary sector has increased very rapidly. And in the primary sector we see that the earning they earn has decreased. And in the secondary sector we see that it has decreased much more quickly then the primary sector. Waseem Hussain ...read more.
