Análisis socioeconómico de la pobreza en las provincias españolas



    () (Departamento de Economía Aplicada (Política Económica). Facultad de Ciencias Económicas y Empresariales. Universidad de Málaga.)


Las provincias españolas con mayores niveles de pobreza se concentraban en 1991 en la zona fronteriza con Portugal, extendiéndose hacia el sudeste de la península a través de Castilla-La Mancha hasta alcanzar las provincias de Andalucía oriental. Así, teniendo en cuenta un conjunto de variables socioeconómicas que están relacionadas con la pobreza, empleamos el método promethee para ordenar las provincias españolas en función de tales variables, obteniendo unos resultados plenamente coherentes con la distribución territorial de la pobreza. A tenor de las estrechas conexiones existentes entre pobreza y las variables socioeconómicas consideradas, analizamos la evolución de estas variables en las provincias españolas entre 1991 y 1998 para vislumbrar las posibles variaciones acaecidas en la distribución territorial de la pobreza. The spanish provinces with more poverty were located in 1991 in the border area with Portugal, spreading towards south-east of the pesinsula through Castilla-La Mancha until researching eastern Andalusia. Considering a set of socioeconomic variables related to poverty, we use the method promethee to sort the spanish provinces in relation to such variables, obtaining coherent results with the territorial distribution of poverty. On the basis of the close connexion between poverty and the considered socioeconomic variables, we analysis the evolution of these variables in the spanish provinces between 1991 and 1998 in order to begin to see the possibles changes in the territorial distribution of poverty.
