This paper introduces inference based stochastic dominance tools to decompose the difference between economic welfare and poverty among countries or regions into inequality effect and income effect. To this aim, the variances and covariances matrix of the generalized Lorenz curve used in that decomposition are developed. The methodology is applied to Spain and its regions for the period 2003-2007. The conclusion is that in some regions, especially Andalucía and Madrid, the income distribution is clearly anti-poor.// En este trabajo se introducen instrumentos de dominancia estocástica e inferencia estadística para descomponer la diferencia en bienestar económico y pobreza entre distintos territorios económicos en efecto desigualdad y efecto renta media. Para ello se derivan las matrices de varianzas y covarianzas de las curvas de Lorenz generalizadas que se emplean en dicha descomposición. La metodología es aplicada a España y sus regiones para el periodo 2003-2007. Se concluye que en algunas regiones, en particular Andalucía y Madrid, la distribución de la renta es antipobre.
