LAC Equity Lab: Income Inequality - Composition by Quintile

Income inequality remains high in LAC, where the poorest receive a very small share of total income. This dashboard measures the proportion of income received by each quintile and each quintile’s sources of income. By clicking on the boxes, it is possible to view the composition by quintile for each of the different sources of income.

The SEDLAC (CEDLAS and WB) harmonization is an effort to increase cross-country comparability. However, methodological changes in the underlying surveys may result in non-comparable data that the harmonization process cannot fully solve. It is important that the user know what data is and is not comparable. For more information, visit the comparability dashboard.
