Using the latest technology the Good Support project is helping dependent people find help from carers and neighbours.
The women plan to create a chapter which will choose people or institutions which have remarkable achievements in fighting economic disproportions.
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).
