    La importancia innegable de la modelización de la distribución de la renta es el origen del presente trabajo en el que se realiza un estudio, básicamente teórico, acerca de los sistemas generadores de renta y se lleva a cabo una recopilación de los modelos de probabilidad que se han utilizado, de forma más o menos generalizada a lo largo del último siglo, para explicar la renta. El estudio realizado es más exhaustivo en unos casos que en otros, poniendo de manifiesto el carácter pionero de la distribución de Pareto, y analizando en muchos de los casos las medidas más importantes de las distribuciones estudiadas, así como la relación de algún parámetro de las mismas con la desigualdad en el reparto. The undeniable relevance of the incomes distribution modeling is the origin of this work in which a basically theoretical study about the generating systems of incomes is realized and also has been carried out a collection of the probability models that had been used, in a more or less general approach along last century, in order to explain the income. The present work is more exhaustive in some cases than in others, revealing the pioneer character of Pareto distribution, and analyzing in many cases the most important measures of the studied distributions, any way the relationship between some parameters from the same ones and the Pareto inequality.
