Abstract

What is an indicator? Seemingly, the solution is so clear that it can deceive us, economists and other social scientists. This work aims at enlightening the answer to the suggested question, discussing the methodological dimensions of the economic indicators – since the phase of production until the phase of readings, highlighting the context of the regional economic indicators.
