Statistics Finland's total statistics on income distribution show that income differentials grew in 2013 compared with the previous year. This was due to faster income growth among high-income groups than other groups. The average income of the highest-income decile grew in real terms by 2.6 per cent and that of the lowest-income decile by 0.3 per cent from 2012 to 2013. In the other income deciles, the income development was clearly weaker.

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).
