This paper focuses on vulnerability to poverty in Italy. We estimate the incidence of vulnerable households drawing from the ISTAT Household Budget Surveys for the year range 1985-2001. We classify as vulnerable those families with a higher-than-average probability of falling below the poverty line in the year subsequent the date of the interview. By making use of the data in the form of a pseudo-panel, we find that vulnerable households represent a sizeable proportion of the population, reaching 50% in some years. The regional disparities are wide and increasing over time, vulnerability in the South being three times as much as in the North East.
