Abstract

Este trabajo aborda la incorporación de transferencias públicas en especie en los estudios sobre la distribución de la renta y el bienestar. En particular, nos ocupamos de analizar la incidencia que tiene la inclusión de la educación pública. Para ello, hemos imputado al consumo de las familias una cuantificación de la transferencia por tal servicio prestada en España en el año 2006. Los resultados obtenidos indican que el gasto en educación pública reduce la desigualdad de un modo apreciable y estadísticamente significativo en los niveles básico y secundario. Por el contrario, no se observa un efecto importante en el nivel universitario. Por último, la educación pública también reduce las desigualdades a nivel territorial, en concreto mejora la cohesión entre las comunidades autónomas.
