Riassunto analitico
This thesis tries to address possible determinants of poverty in Italy by an
econometric analysis based on empirical evidence. In this regard, we are going to
focus on the effects of individual social characteristics on the probability of being in
the status of "poor" defined by at risk of poverty thresholds for the years 2014 and
2016 consecutively. Moreover, we will try to find the answers what are the observed
or unobserved reasons that lead households into the poverty-trap mechanism. A
particular attention will be given to the situation of "working-poor" who has a
job and suffering from poverty. In general, the results that we found indicate the
significant effects of social origins and different characteristics on poverty in general
as well as poverty of working people.
