    Abstract

    El presente artículo realiza un análisis retrospectivo sobre el estudio económico de la pobreza en España desde los años ochenta, centrando la atención fundamentalmente en dos aspectos: la medición de la pobreza y las políticas frente a la pobreza. Así, tras examinar las principales decisiones metodológicas que conlleva el estudio de la pobreza, revisamos las aportaciones más destacadas relativas a la medición de la pobreza en España, organizándolas en función de la principal fuente estadística empleada. De igual manera, examinamos las principales contribuciones de corte político relacionadas con la lucha contra la pobreza, discriminando entre políticas directas de redistribución e implicaciones políticas derivadas de las conexiones de la pobreza con el medio económico y social. This paper analyses retrospectively economic studies of poverty carried out in Spain since the decade of the eighties, mainly focusing on two aspects: measuring poverty and policies against poverty. After examining the basic methodological decisions involved in studies of poverty, we review the most noteworthy contributions regarding measurements of poverty in Spain, organizing them on the basis of the main statistical source used. Likewise, we examine the main contributions of a political nature in connection with the fight against poverty, distinguishing between direct redistribution policies and policy implications in respect to the links of poverty with the economic and social context.
