Questo lavoro quantifica la presenza di enti locali e regionali italiani in società di capitali di media e grande dimensione, sulla base dei dati di bilancio di 423 imprese non finanziarie partecipate da tali enti. In queste imprese si forma oltre l'1 per cento del PIL nazionale, e ad esse si riferiscono circa oltre 200.000 occupati. I dati confermano che le imprese locali sono presenti soprattutto nel nord del paese, e in alcune regioni il loro contributo al PIL e all'occupazione arriva a superare rispettivamente il 6 e il 2 per cento. La presenza pubblica corrisponde nella grande maggioranza dei casi anche al controllo su queste imprese, ove la presenza di soci privati è marginale. La presenza di capitali privati è per altro associata a una maggiore redditività ed efficienza, oltre ad un minore indebitamento.
