Brazil's Gini Coefficient

INDEX (0-100): 100 = HIGHER LEVELS OF EQUALITY


The Gini Index is a measure of how equal a country's distribution of income is. It is a score between 0 and 100. World Economics has inverted the source index data so that 0 represents very high inequality levels and 100 represents perfect equality. Perfect equality means a country's total income is shared equally among its residents, whereas perfect inequality means a country's total income is owned by a single individual.

Brazil's Gini Coefficient Index is 46.6 and was most recently measured in 2019.
