Poverty dynamics and social transfers in Italy in the early 1990s

Poverty dynamics and social transfers in Italy in the early 1990s Poverty dynamics and the ability of the Italian welfare system to reduce poverty are investigated by using the 1991-1995 panel of the Bank of Italy's Survey of Household Income and Wealth. Households most exposed to poverty live in the South, have a larger size, a young or female head, with a low educational level or a discontinuous work profile. The dynamic and static effectiveness (in terms of poverty reduction) of social transfers is analysed, as well as the factors affecting exclusion from the safety net. A closer look is taken at the effects of a minimum income guarantee in the experimental phase in Italy. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png International Journal of Manpower Emerald Publishing

Abstract

Poverty dynamics and the ability of the Italian welfare system to reduce poverty are investigated by using the 1991-1995 panel of the Bank of Italy's Survey of Household Income and Wealth. Households most exposed to poverty live in the South, have a larger size, a young or female head, with a low educational level or a discontinuous work profile. The dynamic and static effectiveness (in terms of poverty reduction) of social transfers is analysed, as well as the factors affecting exclusion from the safety net. A closer look is taken at the effects of a minimum income guarantee in the experimental phase in Italy.
