    La finalidad de este estudio es presentar los factores más importantes que explican la pobreza multidimensional en España, destacando las interrelaciones entre los propios elementos explicativos, con el ánimo de potenciar los efectos de la política económica contra la pobreza. Para ello, se ha construido un modelo de ecuaciones estructurales utilizando la muestra ampliada del Panel de Hogares de la Unión Europea del año 2000. El nivel de educación y el empleo parecen ser los constructos más determinantes. Concretamente,el nivel de formación y el tipo de contrato son las variables con mayor poder explicativo sobre la pobreza multidimensional. || The aim of this study is to present the most important factors that explain multidimensional poverty in Spain, highlighting the relationships between the explanatory elements themselves in the spirit of enhancing the effects of poverty policy. For this purpose, we have designed a Structural Equation Model using the enlarged sample of Household Panel European Union in 2000. Education and employment seem to be the most determining latent construct. In particular, the level of education and the type of employment contract are the most important variables to explain the multidimensional poverty.
