Providing income distribution and justice of income distribution is one of the important phenomena of countries. At the same time, knowledge about income distribution directly displays country’s economic condition since inequalities in income distribution are indicators of general economic inequalities. In this study, income variations were studied by putting forward the functional structure of income distribution in Turkey. Income inequality was computed by using data of Budget Survey between 2002 and 2006 by TurkStat and decomposition within various groups was investigated. The results show that the difference in the levels of affluence between genders, years, levels of education and occupations was found to be quite high. No significant difference in the levels of affluence was observed between rural and urban areas.
