Explaining the data
These figures are taken from data compiled by Eurostat, the data agency of the European Union. Although we have only shown figures for a selection of countries commonly compared with the UK in terms of equality and economic success, there is no other country in the whole of the EU where the richest region is nearly 5 times as rich as the poorest.
