Based on the preliminary description, deduction and induction, the research objective was to determine, using the mathematic and statistical methods, the relevancy and -where appropriate-the level of dependence of the analyzed eff ects on particular elements of household income. fi nance, income inequality, redistribution, Lorenz curve, Gini coeffi cient, household income, unemployment Address
