Travelers 2016

The Bank of Italy carries out a sample survey on tourism every year, since 1996, based on interviews and counts of travelers residents and non-residents in transit to the Italian border.
A total of 64583 thousand Italians traveled during 2016. It is a number greater than the one recorded during 2015, when only 62870 thousand travelers left Italy for a foreign country. At he same time a total of 82873 thousands tourists traveled to Italy during 2016. It is a number greater than the one recorded during 2015, when only 81635 thousand travelers came to Italy from their countries.

I created two different dataviz, published with a piece about tourism in 2016 on InfoData Blog - Il Sole 24 Ore, at this link:

Young People Living Arrangements

The Affordable Housing Database (AHD) has been developed to help countries monitor access to good-quality affordable housing and strengthen the knowledge base for policy evaluation. It brings together cross-national information from OECD countries and EU member states. 
The database currently includes indicators grouped along three main dimensions: housing market context, housing conditions, and public policies towards affordable housing. Each indicator presents data on a particular issue, relevant definitions and methodology, as well as key results. Indicators also discuss comparability, data and source issues, and, where relevant, include the raw data or descriptive information across countries.

I looked at the young people living arrangements. In Italy more than 80% of the young people between 15 and 29 still live with their parents. This is what emerges from the analysis of OECD data. The Italians are also in last place of young people who stay with their partner, only 11.1%.

Demographic indicators 2016

On March 6, 2017 Istat released the last demographic indicators estimated for the year 2016. The italian population on January 1, 2017 amounts to 60 million 579 thousand people.  According to these indicators the italian population would have declined by 86,000 units over the previous year.
On January 1 the Italian residents have 44.9-year average, two tenths more than in 2016.

Individuals over 65 are 13.5 million and accounted for 22.3% of the population. A number increased compared to that recorded in 2007, when over 65 were 11.7 million, accounting for 20.1% of the Italian population.

I summarized a variety of information in a single data visualization. This viz was published on Info Data Blog - Il Sole 24 Ore at this link:
