This chapter presents tables of data on Portugal and an account of its increased earnings distribution. The top earnings shares show no sign of a compression from 1936 to 1950, but there was a very definite fall in the decade following 1968. Over the period from 1982 to 2002, the bottom decile rose and then fell, but the top percentiles rose steadily. The decile ratio rose by more than a third, and there was an evident fanning-out in the upper part of the distribution.
