The evidence of health inequalities within geographical areas in the belonging to the same country or geographical area, is one of the biggest failures of today's society: higher rates of morbidity and mortality have been reported among lower socio-economic groups in many European countries. Despite numerous contribution in literature, still remains an uncertainty about the relationship between socio-economic and health conditions, about their mutual interdependence and about the implications for health policy. The aim of this work is to pro-pose an indicator of health constructed for Italian Regions that highlights the existing differ-ences between the regions surveyed, and to verify the existing relationship between such indicator and the disposable income of families. i

Keywords: Health differential; indicator; factor analysis; Italian regions; GDP; factor scores.
