Report on World Social Situation 2013: Inequality Matters



The Report on World Social Situation 2013: Inequality Matters, was launched during the UN Commission on Social Development, and has a special focus on policy and on the impacts of inequality, including among disadvantaged social groups.


According to the report, 7 out of 10 people live in countries where income inequality has increased in the last two decades. These include a majority of developing countries and some large emerging economies, most notably China. But income inequality has declined in a large majority of Latin American countries (14 out of 20) and in several African countries.


Unlike inequalities within countries, economic disparities across countries remain high but have somewhat declined in recent decades. The mean income of a resident of Albania or the Russian Federation, for instance,

is lower than that of an individual in the lowest 10 per cent of the income distribution in Sweden, who also earns 200 times more than an individual in the poorest tenth of the population in the Democratic Republic of Congo.
