Statistics Finland's total statistics on income distribution show that income differentials grew somewhat in 2015 compared with the previous year. Real income increased in all income deciles, but less for those with medium income than for those with high and low income. The income level of the population's highest-income decile grew by 2.7 per cent in real terms from 2014 to 2015. The income of income deciles V to IX increased by 0.8 per cent. The income level of the lowest-income decile rose by 1.4 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).
