Abstract: Motivation: The issue of income inequality is now at the center of public debate. In recent years, the phenomenon of income disproportions can be noticed, although not in all countries. Its consequence is the deterio-rating social condition, understood as socially undesirable behavior. Aim: The aim of this study was to identify the features that appear with increas-ing income inequality in society. Materials and methods: Data from various sources was used: the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Devel-opment (OECD), the World Bank and the World Health Organization (WHO). The time range covers the years 1960–2017. The descriptive meth-od as well as selected quantitative methods were used: the correlation in-dex, the Warda dendrogram method and spectral analysis, used to assess the cyclicality of economic phenomena. Results: On the basis of the con-ducted analysis, it is possible to notice the increased and more unstable level of unemployment in countries with higher income disparities.
