Ireland's tax system does 'the most in Europe to reduce inequality', says ESRI .
The top 10% of households earn more than 2.6 times that of the middle household in 2017 .The report also described how inequality in household take-home pay has declined. It said that this is “largely because growth was particularly strong for lower-income households between 1997 and 2007, when incomes for the bottom fifth of households rose by an average of more than 12% per year in real terms”.
