First let me say that I am not a designer or anyway artistically talented.

Still because of funding, or the lack of it I have to set an article for
simple data that was written in English and am having some trouble
understanding the data.

I would like your opinions on what it means. I tried to contact the writer
but he is unavailable, his cel phone rings in his desk beside me when I
tried that.

Most of the meaning is straighforward, but I can not understand the + and -
figures he gave.

Second I know this should be obvious but for some reason I can't see it.

I have been asked to to show that the changes from agricultural to
industrial economies resulted in shifts of population almost proportionately
to the increase or decrease in agricultural employment.

The data I was given are as follows:
the cities,
Agricultural/Industrial population (%) in 1980,
Agricultural/Industrial population (%) in 1990,
their percentage changes in population from 1980 to 1990.

City A 95/5, 50/50, +95
City B 20/80, 50/50, -40
City C 80/20, 60/40, +20
City D 90/10, 10/90, +180

Thank you for reading this far.

Have a nice day.

Wishing he paid more attention to what was going on around him.
