International Inequality–We Are Number 1

The data for this comparison comes from the Luxembourg Income Study.  “The chart’s income gap indicator in each country is the disposable (after tax) annual income of the top 10% divided by the disposable income of the bottom 10%. In other words, the income gap is the ratio of the 10% of persons with the highest income to the 10% with the lowest.
