Using data from the European Community Household Panel Survey (ECHP), the authors analyze the effects of gender wage gap on household income distribution in Spain. The empirical approach consists of three steps. First, the individual wage gap is estimated for each female worker. Second, a counterfactual household income distribution is generated by adding to household income the hypothetical non-discriminatory wage of working females. Finally, poverty and inequality levels of observed and counterfactual income distributions are compared.
