Statistics Finland's total statistics on income distribution show that income differentials narrowed somewhat in 2014 compared with the previous year. The narrowing of differentials was due to the reduced income of high-income and medium-income groups and the slightly growing income of low-income groups. The income level of the population's highest-income decile went down by one per cent in real terms from 2013 to 2014. The income level of the lowest-income decile rose by 0.3 per cent. The real income of the whole population diminished by 0.4 per cent.

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).
