Income inequality measures the ratio of median household income of the 20% richest to the 20% poorest. A high ratio indicates greater income inequality. Research demonstrates an association between greater income disparity and poorer population health.
In New Mexico, income inequality has decreased since 2011. New Mexico’s ratio is currently higher than the national ratio.
