The paper investigates the wellbeing development of Italian regions since 1871. To this aim we use 4 aggregating methods (arithmetic mean, geometric mean, Leontief production functions, adjustedMazziotta and Pareto index) to summarize 22 indicators over 6 domains of wellbeing from amultidimensional perspective; this approach allows us to assess differences arising from the adopted aggregation method. Over the 140 years under investigation and selected sub-periods we study σ-, γ - and β- convergence and we shed newlight on the relative performance and historical development of Italian regions, with convergence occurring only in selected domains.

Abstract

The paper investigates the wellbeing development of Italian regions since 1871. To this aim we use 4 aggregating methods (arithmetic mean, geometric mean, Leontief production functions, adjustedMazziotta and Pareto index) to summarize 22 indicators over 6 domains of wellbeing from amultidimensional perspective; this approach allows us to assess differences arising from the adopted aggregation method. Over the 140 years under investigation and selected sub-periods we study σ-, γ - and β- convergence and we shed newlight on the relative performance and historical development of Italian regions, with convergence occurring only in selected domains.
