In this paper, changes in the Spanish personal income distribution along the period 1973-2000 are studied using the parameter estimations of the Dagum model for the state and its autonomous communities. With this aim, in the first place, a theoretical approach to the parameters of Dagum model is developed to obtain a new characterization of each one of them, in relation to its economic interpretation. Available data from Spanish Household Budgets Basic Surveys and European Union Household Panel are used in order to adjust personal income distributions.// En este artículo se estudia los cambios experimentados por la distribución personal de la renta en España a lo largo del período 1973-2000 utilizando las estimaciones de los parámetros del modelo de Dagum para el conjunto del Estado y sus diferentes comunidades autónomas. Con este fin, se realiza, en primer lugar, una aproximación teórica a los parámetros del modelo de Dagum que permite obtener una nueva caracterización de cada uno de ellos, en relación con su interpretación económica. Los datos utilizados para el ajuste de las distribuciones de rentas personales proceden de las Encuestas Básicas de Presupuestos Familiares para el periodo y del Panel de Hogares de la Unión Europea.
