Six statistics for the history of the city

How has Milan changed? Six statistics describe the history of the city, through economic and demographic indicators.

For indicators demographic we have:

• Population data resident from 1880 to 2022, where there was a stable growth in residents until 1973 and then a slow decline.

• I born alive residents, where there was a contraction in births coinciding with war periods, an increase in birth rates starting from the 1970s and a downward curve from XNUMX

• I weddings, where since the 1970s there has been a constant decrease in couples formalizing the union while, since the 2000s, the civil ceremony has prevailed over the religious one.

For indicators economicI propose:

• The rate of inflation, i.e. the increase in prices of essential consumer goods and services for Milan. We can see peaks of contraction in purchasing power in the 1970s and 1980s and the subsequent steady decline in the inflation rate starting around the 1990s.

• For theoccupation, ISTAT data for Milan and Lombardy. The relationship between the number of employed people and the entire resident population is described. It can be noted that the growth curve has been constant since 1995, with the almost sole exceptions of 2008 and the end of 2019

• The rate of unemployment, which reports ISTAT data on the number of unemployed in Milan and Lombardy compared to the resident workforce, calculated in the age range between 15 and 74 years. The unemployment rate has a fairly continuous trend for Lombardy and discontinuous for Milan.
