El trabajo presenta un análisis de la incidencia normativa del gasto público en educación universitaria durante los años 2000 y 2004 para el caso español. Las bases de datos utilizadas son el Panel de Hogares de la Unión Europea 2000 y la Encuesta de Condiciones de Vida 2004. En el estudio se aportan interesantes novedades metodológicas en la aplicación empírica del concepto de incidencia normativa. En este sentido, se consideran diferentes escalas de equivalencia; también se ajusta el gasto a imputar teniendo en cuenta las diferentes ramas de educación universitaria, el género y la región de procedencia del estudiante. Los resultados se ofrecen desde una doble perspectiva regional y nacional, constatándose una incidencia del gasto en España más progresiva y redistributiva en el nuevo milenio que en décadas anteriores. This paper presents a Benefit Incidence Analysis for Higher Education public expenditure in 2000 and 2004, in Spain. As databases, the European Community Household Panel (ECHP) 2000 and the Living Conditions Survey 2004 are used. In this study, new and interesting methodological issues are introduced when applying the Benefit Incidence concept. In this sense, different equivalence scales are considered; besides, imputed expenditure is adjusted, taking into account different university education fields, gender issues and students’ original region. Results are offered following a double regional and national perspective, showing that this expenditure is more progressive and redistributive in Spain in the new millennium rather than during previous decades.
