Re: Can I replace the phrase 'according to' with 'in terms of' or 'in light of'???
For a start, I find "According to ..., I have come to the conclusion that ..." very unnatural. I would use "Based on the figure(s) in the chart, I have come to the conclusion that ...". Neither "in light of" nor "in terms of" have quite the same meaning.

Edit: As you can see, tzfujimino and I were posting at the same time and came to the same conclusion.
Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
