In contrast to the majority of studies which investigate the overall influence of various factors onto the descripted variables we go beyond the exploration of such a mean effect. In this study we explore incomes distributions of males and females in the USA using the quantile decomposition method. The analyzed households are characterized by a set of the attributes (education, age, etc.). We evaluate the strength of the influence of the attributes onto the various parts of the incomes distributions. In such a way we evaluate income inequalities and their causes in different income groups of households of males and females.
