Abstract

The aim of this paper concerns the identity and the didactic contents of Economic Statistics among the disciplines constituting the courses of the Faculties of Economics, Political Sciences, Law, Statistical Sciences and Engineering in Italian universities. This contribution outlines the profile of the subjects regarding the Scientific Disciplinary Sector of Economic Statistics (SECS-S/03) focusing the attention on the academic year 2007-2008, even though it is common knowledge that the study opportunities would have changed quite a bit due to the recent Ministerial Decree. Two main approaches have been used to study the contents of teaching Economic statistics to undergraduates in Italy. More precisely, the authors suggest using a statistical approach being connected with the Factor Analysis for the first approach while they applied the Multiple Correspondence Analysis for the second analytic strategy. The results of the analysis expanded upon the most meaningful dimensions which represent the content approaches adopted in Italian universities.
