Scotland in statistics

Rodger Nisbet is executive chairman at Walter Scott Asset Management in Edinburgh's Charlotte Square earned £8.2m.

The top 2% of Scots have an average weekly income of £2,000.

The top earning 1% has been pulling away, at nearly four times the rate of growth of the next highest percentile. The share of total income taken by the top 1% of earners rose in Scotland from 6.3% in 1997 to 9.4% twelve years later. In turn, that second percentile has seen wage growth twice as fast as the third percentile.

Below the top earning 10%, Stirling University analysis shows there has been very little change in the share of income between 1997 and 2009.
