If the Labour Markets Areas consist of «territorial units identified by a set of adjacent municipalities approximated with travel-to-work daily commuting flows», the change in the number of municipalities that make them, can be considered as an indicator of the changes in the levels of socio-economic interaction within the LMAs. In particular, in the hierarchical-functional LMAs, where the daily commute for work move from the periphery of the system toward its center, the variation in the number of municipalities that are part of it can be interpreted as the result of a change in the attractiveness of the economic and employment level of the center on its immediate geographical surroundings. Following any changes in the spatial configuration of the 21 local labor systems of the major Italian urban areas and crossing data with that relating to demographic and economic level, you can build an interpretive framework of the evolutionary dynamics of these metropolitan areas and the role that they occupy within the national urban system.
