National Institute of Statistics, Italy

The Italian National Institute of Statistics is a public research organisation. It has been present in Italy since 1926, and is the main producer of official statistics in the service of citizens and policy-makers. It operates in complete independence and continuous interaction with the academic and scientific communities. Since 1989 Istat has been performing the role of directing, coordinating, and providing technical assistance and training within the National Statistical System (Sistan). The System was established under Legislative Decree 322/89 in order to rationalise the production and publication of information and to optimise resources allocated to official statistics. Sistanis made up of Istat, central and branch statistical departments of Public Administrations, of local and regional bodies, Chambers of Commerce, other public bodies and administrations providing statistical information.

      Data source(s) used: Labour force survey: from the labour force survey Istat derives its official estimates of the number of employed persons and job-seekers, as well as information about the main labour supply aggregates, such as occupation, economic activity area, hours worked, contract types and duration and training. Istat collects the information each quarter by interviewing a sample of nearly 77,000 households, representing 175,000 individuals who are resident in Italy, even if they are temporarily abroad. Households usually living abroad and permanent members of communities (religious institutes, military barracks, etc.) are not included. The survey has been updated over the years to take into account continual transformations in the labour market on the one hand, and the growing information requirements of users regarding the social and economic reality of our nation, on the other. The most recent change was undertaken at the beginning of in 2004 in line with European Union regulations. The current sample survey is continuous insofar as information is collected during every week of the year and no longer during a single week per quarter. The results are still disseminated on a quarterly basis, except for provincial data which are disseminated annually. A significant feature of the survey is the establishment of new criteria for identifying employed and unemployed individuals,as well as a far-reaching reorganisation of the data collection and production process. To make new estimates comparable with estimates referring to previous years, Istat has reconstructed the time series since the fourth quarter of 1992. Data have been updated since 2nd march 2015 due to the statistical back-recalculation of population time series, based on Census results, disseminated the 14th January 2015. Monthly data were recalculated from January 2004 to December 2014; quarterly data from second quarter 2002 to third quarter 2014; annual data from year 2002 to 2013.

      Data source(s) used: Gross contractual wages, length of work contract and yearly wages and salaries on an accrual basis: Statistics from this survey are based on concept of labour price. For each nation-wide collective agreement, the number of employees and their composition by specific wage level (combined with indications for seniority, skill, estimation about shift work) are fixed at a base year and remain constant until the renewal of base has been done. Employees exclude apprentices and managers. The base used now is December 2010=100 Moreover, these indicators are not influenced by changes due to overtime, worked hours or not worked for strikes or worker's illness. Istat produces two type of statistics on wages according to collective agreements: monthly index (IRC) and annual figures (RCA). Both indicators include basic pay, seniority and shift work allowance, all bonuses specified in national agreements and payable to all workers as well as those paid periodically (e.g. the 13th month). Bonuses related to individual performance or individual working conditions, supplementary payment agreed at the company or local level are not included. Monthly index excludes also bonuses-arrears and una tantum paid in late, but these two items are included in the annual wage figures (retribuzione annua di competenza o di cassa). Wages include tax and social security contributions paid by employees. The monthly index is calculated dividing by 12 the annual figures for each group of qualifications in the collective agreement. It shows the evolution of full-time employees' wages according to collective agreement and to law in force. General index is calculated each month as the average of the increase sets in each collective agreement signed in the national territory. The figures are derived from a selection of the most relevant nation-wide collective bargaining agreements on wages between labour unions and employers' associations. Every month the press release "Contratti collettivi e retribuzioni contrattuali" publishes two wage indices in national labour agreements: per capita and per hour. Per capita index measures the change in the collectively agreed annual wages compared to the base year. Hourly index measures the change of the wages per unit of time (annual earnings divided by the total number of working hours in the year). Annual figures are in terms of accrual or cash values. The first one (retribuzione contrattuale annua di competenza) is the annual wage amount that employees would earn each year if the National Collective Agreement came in force on time. This remuneration assigns backdated una tantum and arrears payments to the theoretical relative month. The second one (retribuzione contrattuale annua di cassa) is the sum of wages that employees have actually received every month. Accrual values are revised if the renewed collective agreement settles the payment of una tantum and/or arrears for the period in which the collective agreement is expired and the new isn't still signed.

      Data source(s) used: Annual register on earnings, working hours and labour cost for persons and enterprises RACLI is the Register with information on employment, wages, labor costs and hours for each employee job (a person might have one or more jobs, with the same or different employer, at the same time or not) and related employer (LEED structure employer-employee Database) in the private non-agricultural sector. It is consistent with the Employment and Business Register (ASIA Occupazione e Imprese) and the Business Local Unit (ASIA UL).From the beginning the production of the RACLI register started separately but in a coordinated way with the employment information system (the so-called DB-Employment) at the single job position level, whose experimentation started during the Census of Industry and Services 2011 thanks to the timely availability of new LEED administrative sources and in particular of the new National Social Security Institution (INPS) declaration, the UniEmens. The main basic statistical input for the production of the RACLI register is the DB-Employment, based on the integration of various administrative sources of the INPS Social Security Institute and not only, among which for the employees a fundamental role is played by the UniEmens archive, in addition to those relating to employees of the entertainment sector (Enpals flowed into the UniEmens since 2015), agriculture (DMAG) and the archieve related to workers with the INPS short-time work benefits.The role of RACLI is mainly to extend, for the employee job sub-population, the information on gross wages, labor costs and hours paid by integrating information from the UniEmens, other than the information related to employment, but also merging other administrative and statistical sources, including data from the 770 / CU tax model and survey data, in particular the four-yearly ‘Structure of Earnings Survey’ (SES), the quarterly survey on ‘Job vacancies and hours worked’ (Vela) and the ‘Monthly survey on employment, working time, earnings and labour cost in large enterprises’ (GI).The main statistical units of the RACLI register is the employee job position defined as the work relationship established between an economic unit and an individual and defined by a starting date.The RACLI register produces annual information on wages and hours paid with a high level of detail with regard to the characteristics of the job position (working time, duration of the contract, contract position, etc.), of the individual (gender, age, country of birth, level of education through the integration with the Population Register) and of the economic unit (economic activity code, size class, local units, etc .. thanks to integration with the ‘Statistical Business Register’ ASIA). The variable total labor cost, at the moment, is produced only at company level, integrating for this purpose also the information from the quarterly survey ‘Employment, earnings and social security contributions’ (OROS) but advanced study are on progress for the estimation of the other labour costs at job level.The first release of RACLI Register was on the 30 December 2016 related to data of the reference year 2014 (Istat, 2016) but it auxiliary information has been widely used since 2012 for a lot of different statistical purposes.

      Data source(s) used: The 19th October 2011 Istat released the new annual series of national accounts based on the most updated versions of the classification of economic activities (Ateco 2007, the national version of Nace Rev. 2) and of products by activity (CPA 2008). At the same time, as in other European countries, the time series of national accounts have been subjected to an extraordinary revision, exploiting advances in methods and sources (e.g. the new balance of payments estimates issued by the Bank of Italy).Contributions to GDP growth:The lack of additivity of volume measures also impacts on the calculation of contributions to GDP growth. The technique adopted by ISTAT to compute contributions to growth is based on the series evaluated at PYP. Given the additivity property of such series, for quarters 2 to 4, the quarter-on-quarter contribution to GDP growth of a component X in quarter t is given by:ContCX(t) = [XPYP(t) – XPYP(t-1)] / GDPPYP(t-1),where XPYP and GDPPYP are the component X and the GDP, respectively, evaluated at previous year prices. The last expression is not correct for the first quarter of the year as it is evaluated at prices of year T-1 while the previous quarter (the fourth quarter of T-1) is evaluated at prices of year T-2. The correct expression is given byContCX(t) = [XPYP(t) – XPYP(t-1) • [XDef(T-1)/ XDef (T-2]] / GDPPYP(t-1) • [GDPDef(T-1)/GDPDef(T-2)] where XDef and GDPDef are the annual deflators of the component X and of GDP, respectively.Analogously, the contribution of the component X to the year-on-year GDP growth is given by:ContTX(t) = [XPYP(t) – XPYP(t-4) • [XDef(T-1)/XDef(T-2)]] / GDPPYP(t-4) • [GDPDef(T-1)/ GDPDef(T-2)].

In the system of national accounts, these concepts are defined on the base of economic territory and centre of interest. Labour inputs have to be classified on the base of the economic activity unit at local level and of the institutional unit. The Italian approach to the labour inputs estimates allows to calculate the jobs and the corresponding full time equivalent, that represent the transformation to full-time of jobs for different working categories (registered, unregistered, main, multiple) detectable by integrating and comparing different statistical sources or by using indirect estimating methods.

At the same time, as in other European countries, the time series of national accounts have been subjected to an extraordinary revision, exploiting advances in methods and sources (e.g. the new balance of payments estimates issued by the Bank of Italy based on the new manual BPM6).Labour input: the main definitions on labour inputs (ESA2010) concern persons employed, jobs and full time equivalent.

A person who is staying, or intends to stay, on the economic territory of the country for one year or more is regarded as permanently settled there. A person is regarded as being temporarily absent if he or she is permanently settled in the country but is staying, or intends to stay, abroad for a period of less than one year. An annual average of head counts provides an appropriate basis for international comparisons and it is used as denominator of per capita values of important aggregates as GDP, gross national income, final consumption expenditure of households.For the years 2002- 2013, the average annual population used in national accounts is not the legal population but it has been obtained by a statistical reconstruction (“Ricostruzione statistica delle serie regionali di popolazione del periodo 1/1/2002 – 1/1/2014” http://www.istat.it/it/archivio/145206) disseminated on January 2015 and used as a reference for the main macroeconomic aggregates and indicators. The statistical reconstruction of population by regions was carried out in order to avoid the effects of changes in the population count mainly due to administrative purposes and that produce an adjustment of the population register after the Census. In particular, the revision of the population register after the 2011 Census of Population was due to the re-registration in 2012 of persons cancelled from the register according to the census results and to the recovery in 2013 of persons actually resident in the municipality but not surveyed by the population census; these phenomena caused a sudden increase of the legal population after the census year.From 1 January 2014 onwards, data have been aligned to the results of the following demographic surveys: "Surveys on the movement and calculation of the resident population" and "Surveys on the age structure of the resident population".

Monthly data were recalculated from January 2004 to December 2014; quarterly data from second quarter 2002 to third quarter 2014; annual data from year 2002 to 2013.

      Data source(s) used: Labour force survey: from the labour force survey Istat derives its official estimates of the number of employed persons and job-seekers, as well as information about the main labour supply aggregates, such as occupation, economic activity area, hours worked, contract types and duration and training. Istat collects the information each quarter by interviewing a sample of nearly 77,000 households, representing 175,000 individuals who are resident in Italy, even if they are temporarily abroad. Households usually living abroad and permanent members of communities (religious institutes, military barracks, etc.) are not included. The survey has been updated over the years to take into account continual transformations in the labour market on the one hand, and the growing information requirements of users regarding the social and economic reality of our nation, on the other. The most recent change was undertaken at the beginning of in 2004 in line with European Union regulations. The current sample survey is continuous insofar as information is collected during every week of the year and no longer during a single week per quarter. The results are still disseminated on a quarterly basis, except for provincial data which are disseminated annually. A significant feature of the survey is the establishment of new criteria for identifying employed and unemployed individuals,as well as a far-reaching reorganisation of the data collection and production process.

The technique adopted by ISTAT to compute contributions to growth is based on the series evaluated at PYP. Given the additivity property of such series, for quarters 2 to 4, the quarter-on-quarter contribution to GDP growth of a component X in quarter t is given by:ContCX(t) = [XPYP(t) – XPYP(t-1)] / GDPPYP(t-1),where XPYP and GDPPYP are the component X and the GDP, respectively, evaluated at previous year prices. The last expression is not correct for the first quarter of the year as it is evaluated at prices of year T-1 while the previous quarter (the fourth quarter of T-1) is evaluated at prices of year T-2. The correct expression is given byContCX(t) = [XPYP(t) – XPYP(t-1) • [XDef(T-1)/ XDef (T-2]] / GDPPYP(t-1) • [GDPDef(T-1)/GDPDef(T-2)] where XDef and GDPDef are the annual deflators of the component X and of GDP, respectively.Analogously, the contribution of the component X to the year-on-year GDP growth is given by:ContTX(t) = [XPYP(t) – XPYP(t-4) • [XDef(T-1)/XDef(T-2)]] / GDPPYP(t-4) • [GDPDef(T-1)/ GDPDef(T-2)].

The Consumer price indices by population subgroups have been calculated from January 2005, with reference base 2005=100 consistently with IPCA. In addition to the general index, are elaborated indexes of special aggregates. The dissemination of these indicators further expands the statistical information on the temporal dynamic of consumer prices, allowing an assessment of differential effects of inflation on specific subgroups identified on the basis of the level of total expenditure. Other data characteristics: The consumer price indices by population subgroups are “satellite” indices of the Harmonized index of consumer price (HICP): they are computed starting from the same basic information used for the HICP (i.e. the same basket of products and the same price elementary data) by modifying the system of weights used for their calculation.On 24 September 2012, HICP weight data set has been replaced cause, in the previous one, data were rounded using rounding rules not in keeping with those adopted for consumer price indices dissemination

      Data source(s) used: Survey on information and communication technology in enterprises: The survey covers the universe of enterprises with 10 or more persons employed active, according to the classification of economic activities adopted in Italy (Ateco 2002), in the areas of manufacturing (D), construction (F), wholesale and detail (G), hotels (H), transport, storage and communication (I), real estate activities, renting, research and development (K) and audiovisual (O). Since 2009, economic activities are those considered by the division 10 to 82 under the new Ateco 2007 (derived by Nace Rev. 2) classification (excluding the section K-Financial and insurance activities and division 75-veterinary services). Since 2010 is also considered the activity 951-repair of computers and communication equipment used for the calculation of the aggregate relating to the ICT sector. The object of the survey are the equipments of ICT enterprises and the measurement of e-commerce. The technique chosen is the investigation of a postal self-completion questionnaire on paper until 2005; since the year 2006 is also made available a web site for online completion of the questionnaire in pdf; since from 2009, the questionnaire is sent also in paper but only at the time of first reminder; since 2011 is no longer sent the paper questionnaire except upon the request of users and the compilation is done by filling in an electronic questionnaire. The sampling design used for the survey is stratified random type. Businesses universe were divided into homogeneous layers for level of economic activity, geographical area and number of employees. The estimation method used is based on the attribution to any undertaking by a factor, said final weight, which indicates how many are the exploits of population units represented by that respondent. The calculation of the final weights was performed using auxiliary variables as the number of firms and the number of employees, according to the information in the archive ASIA. The variables disseminated at regional level are only a subset of those available at the level of economic activity, number of persons employed and geographical area. Each year, the variables collected are defined at EU level and, apart from a few 'core' indicators 'core' that are annual or biannual, some topics are investigated each year with specific sections and they are not fully repeated in subsequent years. For this reason, some published indicators not have values in the subsequent years.

      Data source(s) used: Community innovation survey: The Community Innovation Survey (CIS) was designed to complement the traditional indicators, such as R&D; expenditure and patent statistics, in the measurement of innovation. In particular, the CIS provides a sound statistical basis for better understanding the innovation process and its effects on the economy and for monitoring and evaluating the innovation policies of the Member States and the European Union. Since 2000 the CIS has become a major data source of the European Innovation Scoreboard (EIS), an instrument developed at the initiative of the European Commission, under the Lisbon Strategy, to assess and compare the innovation performance of the EU Member States. The CIS provides the users with a number of indicators as well as data for analytical studies on several features of the innovation activity, such as product and process innovation, organisational and marketing innovation; innovation activities and expenditures; intellectual property rights, impact on turnover, and effects of innovation, sources of information, cooperation for innovation and the factors hampering innovation. It is conducted by EU Member States and candidate countries, plus Norway and Iceland under the co-ordination of Eurostat using a harmonised questionnaire and survey method which define the structure of the questions to be asked and the statistical methods to be used by the countries participating. The CIS 4 survey is based on Commission Regulation No 1450/2004, which establishes the legal basis for innovation statistics and makes it compulsory to deliver data on a number of basic variables. The methodological basis of the CIS is provided by the Oslo Manual, a joint publication by Eurostat and the OECD. The target population is represented by all the enterprises with at least 10 employees operating in manufacturing industries as well as in service sectors. A common set of methodology and a core questionnaire are defined and implemented in order to provide comparable, harmonised and representative data on a pan-European scale.Data here published refer to years 2010-2012, exept for innovation expenditure and turnover's shares from product innovations that are surveyed with reference of 2012. Other data characteristics: As a result of rounding the first decimal place, sometimes the sum of the percentages is not exactly equal to the total.

      Data source(s) used: The 19th October 2011 Istat released the new annual series of national accounts based on the most updated versions of the classification of economic activities (Ateco 2007, the national version of Nace Rev. 2) and of products by activity (CPA 2008). At the same time, as in other European countries, the time series of national accounts have been subjected to an extraordinary revision, exploiting advances in methods and sources (e.g. the new balance of payments estimates issued by the Bank of Italy).Household consumption: It consists of the expenditure, including expenditure whose value must be estimated indirectly, incurred by resident households on individual consumption goods and services, including those sold at prices that are not economically significant and including consumption goods and services acquired abroad. It presents the final consumption expenditure of households broken down by the COICOP (Classification of Individual Consumption According to Purpose) classification and by durability.

      Sequence of Accounts, Quarterly, Italy Data source(s) used: Quarterly Sector Accounts (QSA): record all the activities, whether principal or secondary, of the institutional units. They present the whole set of non financial accounts, from the production account to the acquisitions of non-financial assets accounts on quarterly basis. For General Government sector, property income, other current transfers and capital transfers are consolidated. In addition to the set of accounts, a selection of indicators derived from QSA for Households (as Consumer too) and Non-financial Corporations is disseminated to allow a timely analysis of the behaviour of these sectors in the different phases of the economic cycle.

      Data source(s) used: OROS Survey (Employment, earnings and social security contributions): The Oros survey is aimed at producing quarterly indicators on gross wages, other labour costs and total labour cost for firms with at least one employee. To reduce the statistical burden on enterprises, Oros survey uses data from pre-existent statistical surveys and from administrative sources. Oros indicators are estimated by the integration of Social Security data (employers’ social contribution declarations to Inps, the Italian Social Security Institution) and monthly Large firms Survey data (LES). The Oros target population are enterprises and private institutions with employees that, in the reference quarter, have paid wages and salaries subjected to social contributions and classified in the sectors of industry (sections B to F of the Nace Rev. 2) and services (G to N of the Nace Rev. 2). Each quarter, Oros survey releases a provisional estimate on the current quarter and a final estimate related to the same quarter of the preceding year. The provisional estimate is released with a delay of about 70 days after the end of the reference period and can be revised for the next three quarters until the final estimate release, after 12 months. The final estimate is required to incorporate the new information available after the provisional estimate. The discrepancy between the preliminary estimate and the final one depends on many different factors: - quality and completeness of the final version of the administrative micro data improve with respect to the preliminary version; - the annual revision of the LES data referred to the previous year, included in the OROS estimates in the delivery of the first quarter; – updating of structural variables based on other external sources (e.g. Nace Rev. 2 economic activity classification and institutional nature, etc.); - occasional methodological revisions of the indicators’ estimate.

Workers paid by the voucher system (see) are not included here.The statistical unit is represented by a worker who had paid contributions for at least once during the year. We therefore consider only registered payroll taxes payer in the year. If the contributions are made by the worker, with the mechanism of advances and balances in the same terms for income tax payments, she or he is classified as "professional". If the contributions are made by the principal (natural person or legal entity) within the month following the payment of compensation, the worker is classified as a "collaborator. This distinction is therefore based on payroll taxes payment type.It is usual to define parasubordinati workers who have no other source of income (job or pension) as “esclusivi”; all others are called “concorrenti”, because for them the activity concurs to the formation of income. This distinction is therefore based on the activity type. Moreover, “concorrenti” only pay contributions for OADS type pensions (old age, disability and survivors) , while “esclusivi” pay even a special additional contribution to cover maternity benefits, family allowances and other. As an example we show off the values of year 2010: for “concorrenti” the rate is 16%, for “esclusivi” the rate is 26.72% (of which 0.72% is the special additional rate).

Labour inputs have to be classified on the base of the economic activity unit at local level and of the institutional unit. The Italian approach to the labour inputs estimates allows to calculate the jobs and the corresponding full time equivalent, that represent the transformation to full-time of jobs for different working categories (registered, unregistered, main, multiple) detectable by integrating and comparing different statistical sources or by using indirect estimating methods.

Istat collects the information each quarter by interviewing a sample of nearly 77,000 households, representing 175,000 individuals who are resident in Italy, even if they are temporarily abroad. Households usually living abroad and permanent members of communities (religious institutes, military barracks, etc.) are not included. The survey has been updated over the years to take into account continual transformations in the labour market on the one hand, and the growing information requirements of users regarding the social and economic reality of our nation, on the other. The most recent change was undertaken at the beginning of in 2004 in line with European Union regulations. The current sample survey is continuous insofar as information is collected during every week of the year and no longer during a single week per quarter. The results are still disseminated on a quarterly basis, except for provincial data which are disseminated annually. A significant feature of the survey is the establishment of new criteria for identifying employed and unemployed individuals,as well as a far-reaching reorganisation of the data collection and production process. To make new estimates comparable with estimates referring to previous years, Istat has reconstructed the time series since the fourth quarter of 1992. Data have been updated since 2nd march 2015 due to the statistical back-recalculation of population time series, based on Census results, disseminated the 14th January 2015. Monthly data were recalculated from January 2004 to December 2014; quarterly data from second quarter 2002 to third quarter 2014; annual data from year 2002 to 2013.

      Data source(s) used: INPS Disease sick pay paid by INPS is a benefit granted to employees (excluding servants, employees of industry , managers and doormen) and quasi-employees when there is a morbid event (disease) that causes the inability to work. The statistics were produced using data relating to the electronic transmission of medical certificates of the disease, by family doctors, for employees in the private sector and public administration in operation since 1 January 2011. Certificates of disease are treated by date of onset of the disease in order to treat the problem not only with reference to the flow of the certificates , but also with respect to disease events and their overall duration , even if referring to more than one certificate. The statistical unit is represented by a medical certificate of illness transmitted for each event that occurred during the observation of the event or illness that occurred during the observation or the employee with at least one event of illness occurred during the observation.
