Francesco Maria Chelli, Mariateresa Ciommi, Casilda Lasso de la Vega (2014), Evaluating deprivation in Italy using a multidimensional counting approach in “Rivista italiana di economia, demografia e statistica”, Vol. 68, n. 1, pp. 103-110
Lang.: engReferee: Esperti anonimiRilev.: NazionaleCategory: Articolo in rivista
Keywords: Deprivation; Counting approach
Abstract: The aim of this study is to analyse multidimensional deprivation in Italy at household level in the period 2005-2009 using data collected in the Survey on Income and Living Conditions (EUSILC). As alternative to the traditional indices, we propose the counting approach that fits well with ordinal and categorical variables. Dominance conditions are introduced to guarantee reaching robust conclusions in a counting framework.

Chiara Gigliarano, Francesco Balducci, Mariateresa Ciommi, Francesco Maria Chelli (2014), Going regional: An index of sustainable economic welfare for Italy in “Computers, Environment and Urban Systems”, Vol. 45, pp. 63-77
Lang.: engReferee: Esperti anonimiRilev.: InternazionaleCategory: Articolo in rivista
Keywords: Economic wel-being; Sustainability; regional studies; Beyond GDP
Abstract: The Index of Sustainable Economic Welfare (ISEW) is a monetary measure of sustainability and economicwelfare aimed at overcoming some of the limitations of the Gross Domestic Product (GDP). In particular itaccounts for the value of externalities, for the distribution of income and for the natural resources depletion.Since its formulation in 1989 by Daly and Cobb, the ISEW has been calculated for a number ofnations. More recently, there has been an increasing interest in assessing sustainable welfare also atsub-national levels.Following this trend, the aim of this paper is to provide an empirical application of the ISEW for Italyand for all its regions and macro-areas over the years 1999–2009. In particular, we compare the rankingof the Italian macro-areas and regions based on ISEW with the corresponding rankings based on GDP.This is the first empirical analysis in the literature that provides estimates and comparisons of the ISEWfor all the Italian regions and macro-areas over a long period of time.Another important novelty of this paper concerns the introduction of a weighting scheme to adjust privateconsumptions based not only on inequality but also on poverty.Empirical results show substantial differences between the regional ranking based on ISEW and thetraditional classification based on GDP, revealing, moreover, that the Italian regions are characterizedby a high variability in terms of their sustainable and economic welfare.


Chiara Gigliarano, Francesco Maria Chelli (2014), Measuring inter-temporal intragenerational mobility: anapplication to the Italian labour market in “Quality and Quantity”
Lang.: engReferee: Esperti anonimiRilev.: InternazionaleCategory: Articolo in rivista
Keywords: Occupational mobility; Indices; Italian labour market
Abstract: Aim of the paper is to provide a new class of mobility indices that takes into account the inter-temporal status movements over more than two periods of time. The index is obtained in two steps. First, an individual inter-temporal individual mobility index isprovided, which allows also for analysis of upward and downward mobility. Since memoryplays an important role when an individual makes comparisons with his past, a discountfactor has been introduced. Secondly, individual mobility indicators are aggregated overall the population, in order to obtain an index that allows for comparisons among differentsocieties. The empirical application analyzes the mobility of the occupational status in the Italian labour market within an inter-temporal framework, using the Italian Compulsory Communications system data.


Chiara Gigliarano, Francesco Maria Chelli (2014), A NONPARAMETRIC GINI CONCENTRATION TEST FOR LABOUR MARKET ANALYSIS in “Rivista italiana di economia, demografia e statistica”, Vol. 68, n. 3/4, pp. 135-142
Lang.: engReferee: Esperti anonimiRilev.: InternazionaleCategory: Articolo in rivista
Abstract: Aim of the paper is to analyse the differences in survival times of job contracts amongsubgroups of workers, based on age, gender, educational level, region.We examine the differences both in the length of the first job contract and in the waitingtime between the end of the first contract and the beginning of a new one.We apply the well known Gini index to the measurement of concentration in survival timeswithin groups of workers, and as a way to compare the distribution of survival times acrosssuch groups. We consider a test for differences in the heterogeneity of survivaldistributions, which may suggest the presence of a differential covariates effect on the jobcontract survival.The analysis is based on the Italian Compulsory Communications system data for theperiod between January 2009 and June 2012.


Elvio Mattioli, Giuseppe Ricciardo Lamonica (2015), THE IMPACT OF THE TOURISM INDUSTRY ON THE WORLD’S LARGEST ECONOMIES: AN INPUT-OUTPUT ANALYSIS in “Tourism Economics”, pp. 419-426
Lang.: engReferee: Esperti anonimiRilev.: InternazionaleCategory: Articolo in rivista
Keywords: Input-Output Analysis, Economic Structure, Activation Indices, Tourism Industry
Abstract: The aim of this paper is to evaluate the role and the position occupied by the tourism sector in the economic systems of the most industrialized countries. As the sector is not officially recorded, the analysis focuses on one of its most important components: Hotel and Restaurant Services. The main novelty of this study is that it takes joint account of the direct and indirect links between the other economic sectors of a country and those of other countries. The analysis uses the World Input-Output tables and two descriptive measures: the backward linkage and forward linkage. Joint consideration of these two indices reveals that only for China does tourism prove to be a key sector, while in the remaining countries the sector prove to be an independent sector.


Giuseppe Ricciardo Lamonica (2015), The Log Normal and the Poisson Gravity Models in the Analysis of Interactions Phenomena in “American Journal of Theoretical and Applied Statistics”, Vol. 4, n. 4, pp. 291-299
Lang.: engReferee: Esperti anonimiRilev.: InternazionaleCategory: Articolo in rivista
Keywords: Gravity Model, Poisson Model, Log Normal Model, Comparisons, Count Data
Abstract: Three problems often encountered when bilateral interaction data are analyzed by means of the log-normal gravitymodel: the bias created by the logarithmic transformation, the failure of the homoscedasticity assumption and the treatment ofzero valued flows. When the interaction are count data type that takes non-negative integer values, to overcome these problemsthe literature suggests to use a Poisson gravity model instead of log-normal model. In this paper, using a real interactionphenomenon a comparative analysis of the two models is carried out. The most important results obtained highlights that if thephenomenon is correctly specified, the two specification of the gravity model have a very similar behaviour.
