Abstract

Based on published financial data, the paper aims to identify a new way to prevent financial distress in Italian Local Governments. By applying a set of key indicators, we can discriminate local governments with financial equilibrium from the ones presenting financial problems. The model is tested on a sample of 58 entities and the results can be extended to prevent distress.

Keywords: distress; local government; key indicators
