Laburpena: The objective of this study is to determine the characteristics of households in situation of poverty in the 7th Region of Maule, thus contributing with information to the design and execution of public policies aiming at overcoming poverty. Investigation of available empirical literature and analysis of economic theory gave support and justified the different variables to consider. Based on this and on the CASEN 2003 Survey data (data from the 2006 survey hasn¿t been released yet), the variables to investigate were generated and Logit-Probit econometric models were estimated, which allowed us to contrast the hypothesis associated with each variable. The results indicate that a household has a higher poverty probability when the head of the household is female, when it has higher dependency rates, more children, and difficulties accessing basic services. At the same time, stable employment and a higher household¿s head educational level diminishes the probability of being in situation of poverty. Besides, it is expected that with the analysis of this set of variables, in a future there could be realized works associated with studies of the delinquency in the region of Maule.
