In 2021, the average remuneration of a person aged 35 to 44 (€1,510) was 19.6% higher than that of a young adult aged 25 to 34 (€1,263), according to data released by the National Statistics Institute (INE).

INE data reported in NM also shows that, in the same year, "69% of women had a gross monthly remuneration equal, at most, to the average of €1,354 observed in this population group".

"The distribution of gross monthly remuneration in Portugal in any of the years under review is positively asymmetric, with a high concentration of workers on low incomes", it can be read.

INE also concludes that "different inequality indicators reflect a slight reduction in income distribution inequality between 2019 and 2021 in Portugal".

These data are based on information from the Monthly Remuneration Statement transmitted by companies to the Tax Authority and transmitted monthly to INE.
