Inequality under the Labour government

Briefing note
This Briefing Note will provide a brief analysis of changes to income inequality since the Labour government came to power in 1997.1 The most recent data from 2001-02 show that there has been little change in income inequality since 2000-01. An implication of this is that there has been little impact upon the slight upward trend in inequality that has been experienced over Labours term in government.
