The level and distribution of incomes and wealth are some of the most important factors in the study of economics, and some of the most contentious factors in the political arena. Until quite recently, statistical data concerning these topics in the Republic was very limited. Official estimates for the total of personal income have been published by the Central Statistics Office for many years, but there are as yet no estimates for the distribution of incomes by size of income, although there is an unofficial estimate for the distribution of non-agricultural incomes in 1954.
