The analysis activity, provided for by art. 3 of Law No. 451/1997, is based on the re-elaboration of the data collected through both the research and monitoring activities carried out internally and those deriving from other selected sources. These activities aim to investigate the living conditions of children through the collection of original data and information, and to show the evolution in time of some specific phenomena.
In particular, with reference to the implementation of policies, the primary sources of data are Regions and Municipalities. The relevant data focuses on the conditions of childhood in general and on individual topics of greater current interest or complexity.
Periodic surveys are carried out on the implementation and the effects of the relevant legislation (including legislation not directly addressing children), in order to outline a picture of the trend and state of advancement of strategies targeting children within the framework of the principles and rights enshrined in the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child.
Various social research strategies are also used through the collection of significant examples of census and sample surveys and often by using focus group techniques and interviews with special witnesses.
