LOKALNY ROZWÓJ GOSPODARCZY W POLSCE: KONWERGENCJA CZY DYWERGENCJA?

The research is aimed at presenting economic development trends of the gminas in Poland and concluding whether the process of convergence of divergence takes place there. On the basis of selected features, the synthetic indicator of economic development in 2005 and 2012 was calculated using the Hellwig’s method. For this purpose the statistical data from the Local Data Bank of the Central Statistical Office were used. When analysing the process of economic development, four types of gminas were identified (the leading, acceding, regressing and lagging ones). The results of the surveys indicate that there is no convergence within the entire research area. Convergence can be seen only in small groups of acceding gminas. However, high disparities in the level of economic development continue to exist, which arises, among other things, from the fact that individual gminas have a different susceptibility to socio-economic changes.
