Dominican Republic: Report points to 20% richer perceived 50% of country wealth-Women earn 18% less than men, according to UNDP study

The United Nations Development Program (UNDP) yesterday presented the update of the Interactive Map of Human Development, which contains information on the 32 provinces of the Dominican Republic.

The report, which is prepared with statistics for 2016, shows that the concentration of economic income persists in the Dominican Republic.

He argues that 20% of the richest, who are in quintile 5, receive 50% of the country’s wealth, while the poorest 20% of quintile 1 receive only 6%, according to data from the National Labor Force Survey 2016.

However, the UNDP report also shows that in the Dominican Republic Human Development has had a positive trend in the period 2010-2016.

But he emphasizes that this growth has not been distributed in an equitable manner in the different provinces.
