LOW-END INCOMES

The following charts show household incomes at the tenth percentile. The incomes include government transfers and subtract taxes. For most countries we have two data sources: the Luxembourg Income Study (LIS) and the OECD.

Figure A1. Tenth-percentile household income
Thick lines: Luxembourg Income Study (LIS) data. Thin lines: OECD data. Posttransfer-posttax household income. The incomes are adjusted for household size (the numbers on the vertical axis are for a household with three persons), adjusted for inflation, and converted to US dollars using purchasing power parities. “k” = thousand.
