Some demographic factors such as birth and death rates, anthropometric factors, such as soldiers' height, and socio-economic factors, such as employment, are analyzed. The peculiar characteristics of Basilicata soldiers have resulted in higher mortality in combat and lower in disease than in the rest of Italy.
