All human activities are directed towards the fulfillment of one's needs. The degree of such fulfillment determines one's satisfaction with living conditions and shows the efficiency of actions undertaken by state and central government administration in that respect. The most adequate measure of life satisfaction is one's own assessment, i.e. the subjective appraisal. These are the reasons why the quality of life should be constantly analyzed and systematically appraised. The purpose of this paper is an evaluation of Poland' quality of life by voivodeships in the years 2000-2009.
