The table chart illustrates the number of workers and works in two nations England and Wales during the 50-year period from 1851 to 1901.
It is clear that the quantity of staff in the two countries decreased and there were more women doing this job than the men. In addition, the number of silk plants in the 50-year period increased, despite some fluctuation.
In 1851, the silk workforce was its peak at 130.750 employees, including 76.786 females and 53.964 males. In contrast, the number of factories was at the lowest point, at 272 manufacturing factories. But 10 years later, in 1861, while the figure for total workers was dropped dramatically to 109.869, with 67.933 women and 41.936 men, the figure for factories experienced the highest point to 761.
Over the following 40 years, the total number of women and men workers was sharply throughout the period, to 25.567 and 13.375, respectively. Meanwhile, the figure for factories was declined slightly over the 40-year period, from 761 in 1861 to 623 in 1901.
