This is a vision indicator selected by the Nordic Council of Ministers. It relates to the target Reduced inequalities under the area A socially sustainable Nordic region.

The Gini coefficient is an economic unit of measurement of inequality, e.g. income or wealth distribution.

The coefficient has a value between zero (0) and one (1). The lower the Gini coefficient, the more evenly distributed wages, profits, subsidies, and other benefits within a country. 0 means that all individuals have exactly the same amount of income (ie total equality) while 1 means total inequality.

In the table, the Nordic Region is comprised of the following countries/areas: Denmark, Faroe Islands, Greenland, Finland, Åland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden.

Åland is included in the data for Finland and is only accounted for once in the Nordic Region total.
