Inequality has different dimensions. This chapter focusses on standard measures of income differences between households at a point in time, but also considers inter-generational and spatial inequalities as well as inequalities of wealth. It discusses explanations of recent changes in inequality and the tools that sub-national governments have to influence local inequality levels. Finally, it extends the discussion to discuss inequalities in “social” income – how equally or unequally public services are provided.

Keywords:   Inequality, cross-sectional, spatial, intergenerational, sub-national government, public services
