Obiettivo del presente lavoro Š analizzare l'incidenza e la rilevanza dell'affitto figurativo e il suo impatto sulla distribuzione del reddito, sia in riferimento all'intera popolazione che a suoi sottogruppi. L'analisi si basa su dati provenienti dall'Indagine EU-SILC sui redditi e le condizioni di vita delle famiglie italiane svolta dall'ISTAT nell'anno 2004. I risultati empirici mostrano come l'inclusione degli affitti figurativi nel concetto di reddito porti ad una riduzione dei livelli di disuguaglianza e poverta'. I principali beneficiari, in termini di incremento di reddito, sono le famiglie proprietarie dell'abitazione che non pagano un mutuo, gli usufruttuari, gli anziani, le famiglie monoparentali, i disoccupati e le famiglie che vivono nel Centro-Nord Italia. [Aim of this paper is to analyze the incidence and the relevance of imputed rent on the Italian population and its effect on income distribution, in particular on inequality and poverty, both for the overall population and for specific subgroups. The empirical analysis is based on the EU-SILC dataset for the year 2004, which collects information on Italian households' income and living conditions. The empirical results show that adding imputed rent to the definition of income brings to a reduction in inequality and poverty. The main beneficiaries from the imputed rent are outright owners, rent-free tenants, families with older or unemployed head, mono-parental households and families living in the North-Center of Italy.]
