Riflessioni, analisi e proposte sulla misurazione del benessere nel dibattito contemporaneo
The book presents a thoroughly review of the current literature on well-being and its possible measure and provides a new indicator, which is applied to a comparison between the European countries. The new indicator derives from the statistical elaboration of a huge set of data easily available from official sources. Methodology is duly expounded, then the ranking obtained is compared with th result of a different method of aggregation. Finally some reflections about standard of living and geographical inequality in Europe are put forward.
