En este trabajo se aplican técnicas de pseudo-panel con las Encuestas Continuas de Presupuestos Familiares del periodo 1985-1996 para contrastar si existen diferencias en los valores del gasto y la tasa de ahorro de los hogares españoles en función de su edad y la generación a la que pertenecen. Los resultados muestran diferencias significativas tanto por edades, especialmente para la etapa de jubilación, como sobre todo por cohortes. Al respecto, los efectos de cohortes obtenidos para la tasa de ahorro explican una parte relevante de la evolución de la tasa de ahorro agregada de la ECPF en el periodo estudiado.
