This chart shows trends in real disposable household incomes among G7 countries for households in the bottom 10 per cent, the bottom 40 per cent, the middle 40 to 90 per cent and the top 10 per cent from 1985 to 2014. It shows household incomes trended upward by 8 to 14 per cent across all households from 1985 to 1990. From 1990 to 1995, household incomes among the bottom 10 and 40 per cent thresholds trended downward by 6 per cent and 1 per cent, respectively, while those of the middle thresholds remained nearly unchanged and those of the top 10 per cent threshold increased by 3 per cent. While real disposable household incomes have gradually trended upwards across all thresholds since 1995, the increase in household incomes has increased most significantly for households in the top 10 per cent threshold (an increase of 20.8 per cent) and least significantly for households in the bottom 10 per cent (an increase of 5 per cent).
