This section contains all indicators produced by integrating a multiplicity of official and non-official sources.

The focus is on phenomena under investigation rather than on statistical sources used to describe them. The key concept of this category of experimental statistics is “integration” of a plurality of sources in specific indicators. The sources can be all official, combined in an experimental way, or can include non-official sources.

The introduction of new indicators in experimental statistics is conditional on the assessment of their benefits, that is the opportunity of a better or more in-depth, or else, more comprehensive description of phenomena under investigation. Such benefits should outweigh the drawbacks related to their experimental nature and therefore to the theoretical framework, quality indicators and the other limitations mentioned in the methodological note.

Most of the new indicators are available in Italian language only.
