Southern quality of life is made of "less-standard" phenomena, such as
climate, more leisure time, less stress, stronger family connections,
good food. I am listing several indicators, just as a brainstorming, I
am not arguing that all of them make sense:
1. average temperature
2. days of sun
4. quality of air / air pollution
5. number of people living alone / number of divorces
6. number of people suffering from obesity / heart attacks
In these indicators southern regions may have an advantage.. but
actually I do not know whether these features may and should enter the
composite indicator. And Trento and Bolzano would come out first in
any measure of human development in Italy, regardless of the
indicator, the weights, etc...
