This paper aims to analyze the distribution of resources within the Swiss Cantons and, in particular, the contribution of their different sources of income or the inequality and progressivity of their financing system as a whole. After outlining the aim of this study and revising its existing texts, the third part defines the method used to decompose both indexes of inequality and progression. The fourth part presents its results and finally summarizes its conclusions.
