Sulla base dei dati disponibili dal censimento intermedio del 1996 e del numero delle domande e del volume degli investimenti per la legge 488 (i dati qui rappresentati riguardano solo il secondo bando per motivi di sintesi) nelle regioni italiane per i settori in cui sono divise le imprese censite, si sono effettuati alcuni confronti mirati a verificare in che misura sia possibile stabilire un collegamento tra struttura industriale esistente e performance della 488. La verifica è stata fatta con semplice analisi di correlazione applicata al numero delle imprese e degli addetti nel censimento ed al numero delle domande ed al volume degli investimenti nella legge 488.
