Italian National Statistical
Institute Registration data
The data from the Italian National Statistical Institute was originally
supplied to geographers at the Universtiy of Leeds for research concerned
with internal migration within the EU. The source data are points which
represent Registration zone centroids and the related values are estimated
population values. From these points synthetic registration zones were
constructed from using the ArcInfo THEISSEN polygon command. There maybe
significant differences between actual registration zone boundaries and
the synthetic ones generated, but hopefully these are only small. The image
above is a map of the synthetic registration population data.
Many thanks to Aldo Orasi (Chief of the Population Census Service) and
Valerio Terra Abrami (responsible for the Demographic Structure and Dynamics
Service) of the Italian National Statistical Institute for the making the
point data available for this research.
