Abstract

This article aims to provide a regional view of poverty in Spain from the perspective of the Europe 2020 strategy emphasizing the changes resulting from the economic crisis. This analysis is performed under the objective of inclusive growth that secures the European 2020 Strategy (EU2020S), formally adopted by the European Union in 2010, to reduce the levels of poverty and social exclusion The survey study of 13 socio-economic indicators at the regional level and the identification of relationships between the socio-economic indicators of the EU2020S has allowed (i) to place Spain and its regions in the European context, (ii) to evidence the changes resulting from the crisis, (iii) to identify relationships between the studied variables and (iv) to propose clusters of regions according to their distance to the objectives of the EU2020S.
