This chapter presents tables of data on Austria and an account of its increased earnings distribution. It shows that from 1980, there has been a widening in the earnings distribution in Austria. A comparison of wage tax results for 2004 with those for 1964, it shows that that the top decile has risen by twenty-one percent, enough to qualify as large. The upper quartile rose by ten percent, so that there has been a degree of ‘fanning out’.
