Poverty and inequalities increase in Catalonia after two years of slight improvements

21 March, 2019

After the decrease between 2014 and 2016, inequalities re-grow in Catalonia. Gini and S80/20 are the two main indicators, and are reflected in the tenth edition of the INSOCAT report ‘Precarious work, exclusive housing and lack of social investment’.

The president of ECAS, Sonia Fuertes, has highlighted that “the improvement of the last two years does not impact in the whole of society and the disadvantaged classes are still punished by a socioeconomical model which creates structural poverty and inequalities”.
