Global wealth inequality in 2021 mapped
There are broad types of economic inequality, most notably estimated using the distribution of income and the distribution of wealth.
The distribution of wealth is typically the contrast between the richest of the rich and the poorest of the poor in a given country or administrative divisions (state, province, region, city) or demographic strata. Wealth inequality is near connected to income inequality, which tracks the money individuals earn.
