An atlas of global inequality

Global inequality has grown dramatically over the last 300 years. At the end of the 20th century, global income inequality was greater than ever before. There is debate amongst academics, between street protestors and global institutions, and elsewhere, about the whether inequality is rising or falling.
The Atlas of Global Inequality – created by the University of California – seeks to shed light on that debate and to broaden discussion to include aspects of inequality beyond income measures and beyond aggregated national statistics. The Atlas already includes sections on Health, Gender and Economic Crises and it will be expanding in the future.
