Income Uncertainty and Precautionary Saving: Evidence from Household Rotating Panel Data

Author

  • Albarran, P.

Abstract

The aim of this paper is to analyse precautionary saving associated with income risk over the last two decades in Spain; some empirical evidence seems to point to the extension of temporary job contracts in those years as an important source of uncertainty for Spanish households. I use a rotating panel, the Spanish family expenditure survey, to model income dynamics and consumption growth.
