Income differentials narrowed in 2012

Statistics Finland's total statistics on income distribution show that income differentials narrowed in 2012 compared with the previous year. The narrowing of differentials was due to the reduced income of high-income groups and the growing income of low-income groups. The real income of the highest-income decile went down by 5.9 per cent from 2011 to 2012. This is a result of reductions in realised capital gains and dividend income. The income level of the lowest-income decile rose in real terms by 2.6 per cent from the year before. This was influenced by the level increases of social benefits and changes in taxation.

Description: The total statistics on income distribution describe the annual income of register households and their distribution especially from the regional perspective. The statistics depict the amount of income and its formation from different income sources when taking taxation and income transfers into consideration. Because it is a question of total data formed annually from administrative registers covering the whole population, it is also possible to make dynamic income distribution analyses (e.g. permanent low income).
