By exempting young people from the personal income tax, the government shows that it is determined to keep them in Poland, PM Mateusz Morawiecki said in the central town of Sochaczew on Tuesday.
Study finds people are content with their lives but there are many regional variations.
Poles are becoming more equal in terms of income. Income inequality – the unequal distribution of household income – in Poland has been falling for over a decade. In 2005, the Gini coefficient, which measures the degree of income inequality, amounted to 0.345 (on a scale of 0 to 1, the lower the number, the more equal the society). Last year, it dipped below 0.3 for the first time, amounting to 0.298, according to the Central Statistical Office’s annual report on Poles’ household income, published in May. Rural households remain less equal (0.302) than urban ones (0.281).
