La vulnerabilità economica delle famiglie italiane
This paper focuses on vulnerability to poverty in Italy. We estimate the incidence of vulnerable households drawing from the ISTAT Household Budget Surveys for the year range 1985-2001. We classify as vulnerable those families with a higher-than-average probability of falling below the poverty line in the year subsequent the date of the interview. By making use of the data in the form of a pseudo-panel, we find that vulnerable households represent a sizeable proportion of the population, reaching 50% in some years. The regional disparities are wide and increasing over time, vulnerability in the South being three times as much as in the North East.
