The Haves and the Have-Nots

Updated Updated with additional explanation of how the chart controls for different costs of living around the world.

The household income numbers are all converted into international dollars adjusted for equal purchasing power , since the cost of goods varies from country to country. In other words, the chart adjusts for the cost of living in different countries, so we are looking at consistent living standards worldwide. Now on the vertical axis, you can see where any given ventile from any country falls when compared to the entire population of the world. For example, trace the line for Brazil, a country with extreme income inequality.
