MetadataShow full item record
The study assesses the level of socio-economic development in the voivodeship of Łódź in years 2000-2006 and compares it with the situation of the Polish economy. Data analysis allows us to conclude that GDP per capita and average gross wages in the voivodeship of Łódź are lower than in the country. Within the voivodeship, the living standard of the urban population is higher than in rural areas. The importance of the private sector for the voivod eship economy has been growing, but the sector’s structure is not favourable. Further intensification of structural adjustments is necessary, especially dynamised development of the services sector, restructuring of agriculture and more extensive diversification of the industrial structure. The adjustments are essential to boost enterprise effectiveness and competitiveness and to improve the position of the voivodeship in relation to other regions in the country.
