What exactly does income inequality mean, and what has happened to income inequality in Britain in recent years? In these pages we describe the most common measures of income inequality and provide data for Great Britain and comparable countries with accompanying graphs and some commentary on the evolution of income inequality.
There are many dimensions to inequality e.g. social, racial and gender inequality. Here we present data and commentary on economic inequality, specifically income, earnings and wealth inequality. The side panel lists our data sources. And from the side panel you will also be able to download the data in Excel or Comma-separated (CSV) formats (the latter being simple text files which can be read into any text editor or spreadsheet.)
