This paper reviews trends over the last three decades in the personal distribution of income in the UK. The first section of the paper documents the trends from a number of different perspectives (inequality, poverty and real income growth). Later sections explore the causes of the large increase in income inequality in the UK between the late 1970s and the beginning of the 1990s and the halt in the increase over the subsequent five years.
