The World Inequality Lab, a global inequality research lab based at the Paris School of Economics, has released a dataset documenting the distribution of wealth and income across 173 countries and 19 regions, providing an overview of worldwide inequality. One insight from the data is that income inequality has persisted in the Middle East and Latin America. These regions led the world in income inequality in 2019, with the top 10 percent of the population capturing 56 percent and 54 percent of the average national income, respectively.
