Abstract

Given the social and academic relevance recently aroused by the social stratification, this paper aims to carry out a synchronic analysis that will serve as a "picture" of the factors associated with economic poverty in Spain, after ten years have elapsed since beginning of the Great Depression. With this purpose, we start from a relative conception of poverty, which allows us to treat the relative income insufficiency in terms of “poor” and “non-poor”. Therefore, a profile of individuals with low income in Spain is obtained, to later expose the socioeconomic and demographic factors related to this phenomenon through a bivariate analysis and several logistic regression models. Ultimately, our results show that there is no direct relationship between poverty and residence in the north or in the south of Spain, although the data show an association between it and other individual factors such as age, educational level, professional and employment situation or productive sector.
