Number of Poor In Italy Double Since 2007

AGI reports:

The number of absolute poor in Italy doubled from 2.4 to 4.8 million between 2007 and 2012, said acting ISTAT President, Antonio Golini, during a Parliamentary Joint Budget Committee hearing. There has been a parallel worsening of the indicator of material deprivation, which had already dropped in 2011, and that doubled in only two years. 
  Almost half of the 2.347 million absolute poor, up from 1.828 million in 2011, reside in southern Italy.
