Abstract

The gini coefficient measuring the relative income inequality in Korea dwindled in 1980s and early 1990s, but started to rise from the mid 1990s. Therefore, the locus of gini coefficients has shown a U-shaped curve during the last two decades. It decreased from 0.287 in 1982 to 0.244 in 1995, and rose to 0.283 in 2000 and, again, to 0.298 in 2006. It turned out that the aging of the population was the most important factor that caused the recent increase in gini coefficient. A study on the demographic characteristics showed that about two thirds of the increase in gini coefficient can attribute to the rapid population aging, and that the rest to the economic factors such as discrepancies in productivity, unemployment rate, wage difference, share of part-time workers and so forth. The second most important factor causing the increase in the gini coefficient would be the enlarged wage difference. (The rest omitted)
