Human Development in the Italian Provinces - Holding that development cannot be measured solely in terms of per capita Gdp, we deemed it necessary to consider certain aspects of a social-economic nature. In particular, in the context of the Italian provinces we considered introducing some modifications to the United Nations Hdi, and thus proposed a new Provincial Index of Human Development, PrHdi (Isupr = Indice di sviluppo umano provinciale). This index is designed to take account of both the strictly economic aspects and the geographical peculiarities of the area examined. The PrHdi classification of the Italian provinces is compared with the per capita Gdpbased version, thus highlighting considerable pitfalls in measurement of development through per capita Gdp alone.
