This essay aims to show how the relation between income inequalities and social diseases is relevant at regional level, according to the ideas about a) ineffectiveness of economic variables in representing communities’ development and b) significant variability within Countries of such phenomena, other than among Countries. For this purpose, the elasticity of seven social disease indicators to the Gini index is estimated for the Italian regions in the period 2007-2011, confirming the expected hypotheses.
Keywords: Gini index, social inequalities, regions.
