In the Lorenz curve, the percentiles of population according to wealth or income remains on the horizontal axis, and cumulative wealth is plotted on the vertical axis.

Most commonly, Lorenz Curve is used for economic inequality representation; however, it can also be used to demonstrate unequal distribution in any system.
