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).
