India's Inequality Index

INEQUALITY INDICATOR (INDEXED: 0-100, 0 = HIGH INEQUALITY; 100 = HIGH EQUALITY)


The distribution of income in an economy matters and can be measured on a country by country basis by the Gini Coefficient. However Gini values are not all up-to-date.

World Economics has developed a simple Inequality Index which references the Gini Coefficient in relation to each country for comparison purposes.

The Index is on a scale of 0-100, a high value indicates a more egalitarian society - and a low value suggests a lot of the national income is in the hands of very few depending upon the unit of measurement.
