There is one thing that I do not know how to express properly. It is about 'comparison'.

For instance, the proportion of three industries (agriculture, manufacturing, and services) in 1990 is 60:30:10, but the proportion in 2000 is 10:30:60.

Then I made a figure to emphasize the change between the two years. Under it, I have to explain the figure.

Is it correct to say "Fig1. Comparison between proportions of three industries (agriculture, manufacturing, and services) from 1990 to 2000." ?

It sounds awkward. But I can't figure out another way. :-s

Hope you help me out.

Thank you!

Comparison between what? Between three industries or between 1990 and 2000?

Between the two different proportions in 1990 and 2000.
Then, how about this one?

Maybe you could try something like this:
Fig1. Proportion between three industries (agriculture, manufacturing, and services) in 2000 against the one in 1990.
or
Fig1. Proportion between three industries (agriculture, manufacturing, and services) in 2000 as compared with the one in 1990.
Also, I would specify the exact parameter compared in the triple proportion; is it the income of these industries that is compared, or something like that?
