In this paper we propose a two step analysis. In the first phase, we introduce a flexicurity index for disabled people by using Italian regional data; then, we apply the local Moran transition probability matrix to the flexicurity index in order to evaluate the presence of spatio-temporal persistence in its distribution. The results show that Northern Italy regions have a higher degree of flexicurity than Southern Italy ones. The low level of flexicurity is a consequence of the high concentration of civilian disability pensions among people in working age (passive measure). In addition, we show that the persistence of regional dualism, in terms of flexicurity, can be reduced through income support tools that are different from passive measure and are characterized by more flexibility in their allocation process.

Abstract

In this paper we propose a two step analysis. In the first phase, we introduce a flexicurity index for disabled people by using Italian regional data; then, we apply the local Moran transition probability matrix to the flexicurity index in order to evaluate the presence of spatio-temporal persistence in its distribution. The results show that Northern Italy regions have a higher degree of flexicurity than Southern Italy ones. The low level of flexicurity is a consequence of the high concentration of civilian disability pensions among people in working age (passive measure). In addition, we show that the persistence of regional dualism, in terms of flexicurity, can be reduced through income support tools that are different from passive measure and are characterized by more flexibility in their allocation process.
