3 out of 10 do not know if they will be able to pay the mortgage or rent

Runaway inflation, a rise in interest rates or even higher energy prices are some of the elements that they are putting the country’s economic stability between a rock and a hard place, inevitably having negative effects on the pockets of Spaniards, especially those with lower incomes. So much so, that the pessimism about the children’s future employment of families in vulnerable situations has increased by 25% compared to before the pandemic, according to a study by the Universidad Pontificia Comillas.

In this sense, the Universidad Pontificia Comillas has produced a report in collaboration with the NGO A+Familias (an organization that supports vulnerable families in the Community of Madrid) based on interviews with 803 families in vulnerable situations in neighborhoods in the south of Madrid. Specifically, two waves of surveys were carried out in the same population, the first, in the 2019-2020 academic year, just before the pandemic was declared, and the second, in the 2021-2022 academic year.
