This PowerPoint file contains 36 of the more important graphs published in The Spirit Level: Why More Equal Societies Almost Always Do Better by Richard Wilkinson and Kate Pickett.

We hope you will use them in talks, lectures or discussion groups to help increase people's understanding of the effects of inequality.

The slides can be downloaded and are provided on condition you acknowledge their source. We strongly recommend that you use them in conjunction with the book which explains the relationships shown in the graphs.

Notes
  • The book ‘The Spirit Level’ was not written to show the link between inequality and voting systems but the link is nonetheless there if one looks closely. A quick review of the Spirit Level graphs shows that the countries with the greatest inequality are also generally using Plurality/Majority voting whereas those with the least inequality all have Proportional Representation voting systems.
