The World Bank In Brazil

Brazil’s economic and social progress between 2003 and 2014 lifted 29 million people out of poverty and inequality dropped significantly (the Gini coefficient fell by 6.6 percentage points in the same period, from 58.1 down to 51.5). The income level of the poorest 40% of the population rose, on average, 7.1% (in real terms) between 2003 and 2014, compared to a 4.4% income growth for the population as a whole. However, the rate of reduction of poverty and inequality appears to have stagnated since 2015.
