Brazil: Gini coefficient income distribution inequality 2000-2017

This statistic depicts data on the degree of inequality in wealth distribution based on the Gini coefficient in Brazil between 2000 and 2017. The Gini coefficient measures the deviation of the distribution of income (or consumption) among individuals or households in a given country from a perfectly equal distribution. A value of 0 represents absolute equality, whereas 100 would be the highest possible degree of inequality. As of 2017, Brazil was deemed the most unequal country in Latin America, with a Gini coefficient of 53.3. Prior to 2010, wealth distribution in Brazil had showed signs of improvement, with the Gini coefficient decreasing in the previous three reporting periods.
