The aim of this Master’s thesis is to analyze households’ healthcare deprivation and its determinants in Spain for the years 2014, 2017 and 2020. The analysis is divided in two main sections; the first one aims to determine the evolution and presence of healthcare deprivation in Spain by region and area using counting deprivation measures. The second aims to analyze the determinants of healthcare deprivation using zero inflated models from a multidimensional and unidimensional approach. We obtain that healthcare deprivation varies depending on the region and area; having the northern and rural areas less deprivation. And we conclude that income, area, number of retired and incapacitated members in the household and household size are variables that determine the level of deprivation of the households.
