Svimez was founded in 1946 as a private non-for-profit association. Svimez aimed to stimulate new economic policies for the South Italy starting from rigorous economic analysis. SVIMEZ has carried out numerous studies in agreement with public and private bodies and advisory activities with parliament and Italian government.
SVIMEZ uses for its analyses a regional Structural Equation Model (SEM).Since 1974 the annual report on the Economy and Society of Italian Mezzogiorno is considered the main research report on South Italy.
