Abstract and Keywords

This chapter addresses the extent of social inequalities in contemporary Spain using a broad array of indicators. Trends in economic inequalities are firstly analysed. The risk of poverty and social exclusion are then considered because of their special relevance in the Spanish case in the context of the Great Recession. Then, changes in educational inequalities and social mobility are examined. An account of several indicators of gender differences in the labour market and in other areas, is then provided. Lastly, a discussion of social inequalities across generations is offered. These trends are compared with those in other European countries, and specificities of the Spanish case are particularly emphasized.

Keywords: inequality, poverty, education, gender, generations
