Quality of life, Bari and Bat are not places for young people
Il Sole 24 Ore’s survey “The quality of life of children, young people and the elderly”, now in its fourth edition, was presented as a preview yesterday at the Trento Festival of Economics: the rankings measure the “responses” of the territories to the needs specifics of the three most fragile and at the same time strategic generational targets, the services aimed at them and their living and health conditions.

As regards the quality of life of children, Bari is in 71st place in the ranking. Looking at the twelve indicators taken into consideration we see that for living space (average square meters per inhabitant in the residential sector) we are actually in 102nd place out of 107 with a value of 55.6. The situation is better with regards to paediatricians, given that we are in 30th place, with 2.5 active professionals for every thousand residents aged 0-14 years. For inadequate numerical competence we are 74th according to Istat 2022-2023 data.

Bad for children who have used municipal childcare services (we are 78th with a value of 8.8), ditto for inadequate literacy skills (68th), for the sports and children index (74°). The best indicators for the province of Bari are the one relating to crimes reported against minors, in which we score a value of 1.3 (for every 10 thousand minors) placing us in 25th place in the ranking, and the one relating to school buildings with gym (value equal to 46.1% of the total and 21st place in the ranking).

The situation is worse for young people, with Bari actually finding itself in 93rd place in the general ranking. This data is affected by the fact that the percentage change from 2023 to 2019 of young residents (18-35 years) has a minus sign (-0.6), in addition to the average age at which one has the first child (equal to 32 .6 years, given that it places us in 88th place) and the rental prices which affect 29% of the average income despite the semi-central area having been taken into consideration.

Finally, as regards the elderly, Bari is in 61st place. In this case it goes better than the other two, but we are still mid-table. The very low value (0.4) of users of municipal social services is weighed by the libraries which are 2.5 for every 10 thousand residents aged 65 and over and only 11.6 places available for every thousand over 65s in RSAs.

Things are worse at Bat which, as far as children are concerned, is in 85th place in the ranking, while for young people it is 99th and for the elderly it is in 60th place.

As regards children, the most striking data are the living space (105th place with an average of 53.3 m2 per inhabitant in the residential sector), the children who have used municipal services for children (value 6.9 and 92nd place ) as well as equipped greenery and school gardens (for both these indicators it is in 98th place). The only counter-trend data that brings the Bat to 3rd place in the ranking is the number of school buildings with a gym (56.9%).

The young people of the Bat, like those of Bari, are also decreasing but in this case the value marks -0.7%. The cost of rent (32% of income) and youth unemployment (17.2%) and the low number of municipal administrators under 40 (20.2% of the total and 97th place) weigh heavily.

The situation of the elderly is better, especially with regards to the consumption of drugs for chronic diseases (16th place), consumption of drugs for depression (4th place), but there is a lack of libraries, urban gardens and geriatricians. In this case, Bat is in first place in a ranking, i.e. the one relating to single people given that it scores a value of 26.6, the lowest of all the provinces analysed.
