Publication date:
Julio Carabaña and Olga Salido

In this paper, the evolution of the disposable income of immigrants in Spain is analysed over the last economic cycle, taking into consideration the average income, inequality and the distribution of immigrants in fixed income classes. Then this evolution is compared with that of the national population, and finds that the gaps increased until the crisis arrived and were subsequently maintained. Finally, an explanation in terms of the intensity of the immigration is proposed.
