Abstract

La evidencia obtenida en este trabajo muestra que la percepción individual de bajos salarios es un fenómeno fuertemente asociado en España a la situación de pobreza de los hogares. Esta relación se acentúa notablemente si quien detenta el empleo de bajos salarios es el cabeza de familia del hogar, pero es significativa incluso en el caso de perceptores de rentas secundarias. La elevada falta de respuesta sobre la renta de los hogares en la Encuesta de Calidad de Vida en el Trabajo, un fenómeno habitual en las encuestas dirigidas a hogares, es una importante fuente de sesgos econométricos asociados a la selección que deben ser considerados en el análisis.
