The report, produced by the School of Civil Economics in collaboration with Avvenire and with the contribution of Federcasse and Confcooperative, is based on the data analysis of 77 indicators of 10 parameters: Hospitality, Environment, tourism and culture, Human capital, Demography and family, Economy and Inclusion, Civil Commitment, Work, Legality and Safety, Health and Personal Services. The researchers who carried out the research underlined a general improvement and a convergence trend: “There is a triple, albeit extremely slow, process of convergence of scores upwards: on a general level (the second half of the ranking is less far from the first), at the top level (the former no longer so far from the latter) and at the flop level (the latter are closer to the penultimate).
The convergence in well-being this year is observed in particular between the Center and the North, with the Center improving on average in well-being compared to the North by 0.527 points ”. This means that for the second consecutive year there is a limited and constant trend of convergence between the Italian territories and a general improvement in the quality of life.CopyAMP code.
