This document analyzes the impact of the Minimum Income Scheme (MIS) in the Basque Country. First, we study its effect as a poverty palliative policy and we find a critical impact in its reduction. However, for some receiving households, the amount received is not enough to get out of extreme poverty. Second, it evaluates whether the MIS delays the exit to a job, concluding that such delay does not occur. Finally, the activation measures aimed at this group, in particular training, have a strong positive impact on the return to employment.
