Australia: Indicators on inequality outcomes and policies affecting them


Various indicators of inequality outcomes, policies affecting labour income inequality, as well as of tax and transfer policies have been gathered. For each individual country, the country profile assembles those indicators which are considered as most relevant and for which data are available for a majority of countries. Each diamond shows the level of the indicator compared with the OECD average, thus showing country differences and what the available policy levers are. The dotted line represents the OECD average, and the data are in units of standard deviation.
Information on the definition of these indicators is available here.
