Gini coefficient

The Gini coefficient is a number between 0 and 1 that measures the degree of inequality in the distribution of income, where 0 corresponds with perfect equality and 1 corresponds with perfect inequality.

P90/P10

P90/P10 refers to the percintile ratio of the 9th and the 1st decile cut-offs. We cannot provide figures for the industries 'T Activities of household as employers', 'U Activities of extraterritorial organisations and bodies' and 'Z Unknown industry' due to few observations.

S80/S20

S80/S20 refers to the ratio of the share of income held by the top 20 percent of the distribution and bottom 20 persent of the distribution.
