Abstract: This article analyzes personal earnings distribution in the Czech Republic, Austria, and Poland, using EU-SILC longitudinal data. It captures a before-crisis period, 2004–2007, and a period impacted by the economic crisis, 2007–2010. It focuses on earnings distribution from three perspectives. First, it applies a relative distribution method to verify the hypothesis that the crisis might have spurred a “hollowing of the middle.” Second, it focuses on factors that affected the movements of individuals along the earnings distribution. Third, it reveals the structure of earnings inequality through regression-based decomposition. It concludes that the crisis did not spur earnings polarization.
