The aim of this paper is to study factors which may affect the incidence of civilian disability pensions in Italy from a macroeconomic point of view, taking into account all age groups, and introducing spatial effects by taking into account possible interaction among the policies of individual regions. The analysis is developed on a panel of the 20 Italian regions over the period 2002–2008. Education, life expectancy, and the environment appear to reduce the incidence of civilian disability pensions; spillovers in the policies of neighboring regions are connected with the ageing of the population, and with the environment. Policy recommendations are developed. Copyright Springer Science+Business Media Dordrecht 2015
