Abstract

Spanish Abstract: El artículo utiliza una perspectiva de género y se centra en las situaciones de precariedad de los hogares con niños/as en el Estado Español. Se analizan las situaciones de los hogares monomarentales en comparación con el resto de hogares en los que residen niños, bajo la hipótesis de que estas familias se encuentran comparativamente en situaciones más precarias que las de hogares biparentales con niños.

A partir del Panel de Hogares de la Unión Europea (PHOGUE) 1995 y 2000 y la Encuesta de Condiciones de Vida 2005 y 2010 (EU-SILC), se crean cuatro indicadores de precariedad vital: laboral, ingresos, vivienda y salud. Se realiza una comparación de medias y modelos generales lineales.

Los resultados ilustran la mayor precariedad de los hogares monomarentales, y evidencian la existencia de unas diferencias importantes de precariedad entre las madres de estos hogares y las madres en hogares biparentales, y entre los hogares biparentales numerosos y hogares biparentales no numerosos.

English Abstract: This article uses a gender perspective and focuses on precarious situations of households with children in the Spanish State. Lone mother households are compared to other households with minor children. The hypothesis is that these households are comparatively more precarious than two-parent households with minor children.

Household Panel of the European Union (ECHP) (1995 and 2000) and European Union Statistics on Income and Living Conditions (EU-SILC) (2005 and 2010) are used to create four indicators of vital precariousness: Employment, income, housing and health. Comparison of means and general linear models were performed.

The results illustrated the greater precariousness of lone mother households. Significant differences of precariousness between lone mothers and mothers in two-parent households are reported. Among the mothers in two parent households, the results outline differences between households with one or two children (less precarious) and the households with three or more children (more precarious).
