Kurzfassung auf Englisch: In this paper we analyse economic poverty amongst children and youths (aged 18 to 29) in Spain around the 1990’s. In particular, we focus on how poverty among these groups relates to the labour market situation of the household as a whole, mainly that of the head and youth household members. Given the recent increase in youth residential parental dependency and the jump in youth unemployment and labour market instability, we consider the notion of childhood in a broad sense when discussing child poverty: Many of those aged 18-29 might be considered "dependent" on their families in a way similar to how children aged less than 18 are typically assumed to be. On the other hand, children might be better off is his/her elder brother/sister works. We analyse both static and dynamic aspects of child and youth poverty making use of both cross-sectional and longitudinal data from the 1990 Encuesta de Presupuestos Familiares and 1985-1992 Encuesta Continua de Presupuestos Familiares. We show that the Spanish family is playing a key role in defending its members against the difficulties imposed by the new
social and economic environment. Many parents are supporting their youth children at the expenses of increasing their risk of being in poverty. But this is not the only direction in which the family safety-net operates. Employed youth are also contributing to the basic family safety-net in households in which the head is not in employment: Families with an employed youth have a lower risk of short and long-term poverty.
