The article presents results of the studies concerning the functining of the regional labour market. The aim of these studies was to determine dynamic interrelationships occurring between labour supply and demand on the regional labour market. The object of the studies was the urban administrative province of Łódź, and they encompassed the period between 1976 and 1982. Appearance of acute symptoms of the economic, social and political crisis, activities undertaken to reform the national economy and other factors caused major changes on the labour market during this period. The studies were conducted by means of two different methods. For analysis of the 1976-1980 period there were applied models of changeability over time describing particular phenomena on the labour market, while for the years 1981-1982 there were used indices of irregularity. Equilibrium on the labour market of the administrative province of Łódź was assessed by means of measures applied by those dealing with the problem in theory and practice. The model of developmental trends in employment in this province for the years 1970-1980 was built. Similarly to the models of changeability over time of phenomena on the labour market, the parameters of this model were estimated using the method of least squares. Application of certain methods used in studies on mass phenomena for analys is of the functioning of the regional labour market became a prerequisite for formulation of conclusions of methodological character concerning their applicability for analysis of processes occurring on the regional labour market. This became the second –minor aim of the analysis. There are also discussed in this article the factors determining the level of demand and supply of labour in the period under study and presented conclusions derived on the basis of the performer analysis.
