How secondary activity has changed in the Uk since 1964:

Agriculture in the primary sector has started to decline. This can be because;

  • Increased use of chemicals
  • Development of larger, more specialist farms
  • Increase in part time workers so less employment, less people working on farms

Mining in the primary sector has also declined. This may be because;

  • Lots of mineral deposits are exhausted
  • Damages the environment
  • More machines used so less people needed
