Abstract

The indices of deprivation are a valuable tool to measure the socio-economic disadvantage in certain geographical areas of interest. The goal of the work is to measure inequalities between the towns of Abruzzo occurred in the last two decades through the use of some indices of deprivation able to incorporate the key aspects of the great wealth of information relating to population census. In particular, the analysis is developed through the construction and the development of three indices of deprivation, to be analyzed with the principal component analysis. Through this method, we note a clear increase in the proportion of disadvantaged areas in the Abruzzo region in the period from 1991 to 2011 in all provinces.
