Local Labor Systems and Agricultural Activities: The Case of Tuscany

Antonio Giusti and Laura Grassini ()

International Advances in Economic Research, 2007, vol. 13, issue 4, 475-487

Abstract: The features of the Italian economy cannot be properly understood without taking into account the territorial organization, in particular, the so called local productive systems. The Italian National Statistical Institute provides a partition of the Italian territory into Local Labor Systems (LLS) on the basis of the Population Census data. LLS are a set of contiguous municipalities with a high degree of self-containment of daily commuter travel. This paper focuses on a study of the structural characteristics of agriculture activities in the LLS of Tuscany on the basis of the micro-data from the last General Agricultural Census. The main aim is to provide a picture of the economic activities of the LLS by using data from the Population and the Industrial censuses also. Copyright International Atlantic Economic Society 2007
