    During the 90’s different academic works have pointed to an increase of social inequalities in France. The first part of the following paper examines the question through a synthesis of the different statistical data and analysis published on the matter since the beginning of the 80’s. It also focuses on the difficulties and limits of such a statistical approach, especially according to the holistic character of social inequalities. The second part of the paper tries to throw light on three different dimensions of this holistic character: the network of interactions between the different social inequalities; the accumulation of social advantages versus the accumulation of social handicaps; and last the reproduction of inequalities through successive generations.
