Profile of Gianni Betti: born on July the 21st 1970 in Siena (Italy). Graduated in Statistics and Economics at the University of Siena in 1994, obtained his PhD degree in Applied Statistics at the University of Florence in 1998.

Research fields of interest and expertise: Personal income distribution theory and models; measures of living conditions with special reference to poverty analysis and inequality; models of economic behaviour with special to consumers expenditures; equivalence scales and cost of children. Statistical methods for longitudinal (panel) analyses; nonresponse, interviewer effect, panel attrition and weighting problems; sampling theory with particular reference to small areas. Statistical matching of different sources (Census, Surveys, Administrative data, etc…). Long experience in working with SILC and Household Budget Surveys, included some eastern European countries (Albania, Macedonia, Montenegro, Poland, Romania and Ukraine).
