The objective of this paper is to test the existence of Kuznets's inverted-U pattern of inequality at the intercountry level inside a group of 20 countries belonging to the Arab League. In order to achieve this objective, an intercountry inequality index was calculated then the existence of an inverted-U pattern was tested. The results seem to confirm the existence of this pattern between the Arab countries between 1982 and 2006.
