The paper presents spatial analysis of diversification concerning the level of disablement on the basis of the last National Census, 2002. It indicates that the afore-mentioned disablement, to a larger degree, does not coincide with the distribution of the demographic old-age which is considered to be the main cause of disability (in quantitative terms). Among many other factors responsible for that situation, the article highlights such elements as functional structure, including the level of socio-economic development, unemployment and employment in agriculture. Also, the paper suggests that the high number of handicapped people in some 'gminas' may be related with different approach on the part of the inhabitants to legal and administrative procedures that are required to obtain disablement status for economic purposes.
