A spatial regression model of retail chains development in Poland
Model regresji przestrzennej rozwoju sieci handlowych w Polsce
Languages of publication
The key research goal is to identify predictors of retail chain space development in Poland, as well as to define if there is any spatial correlation between increasing retail area and the spatial proximity of the other malls. In order to do so, the study covers an analysis of the retail area in Poland in the framework of the socio-economic development of cities. The study covers a macroeconomic overview of the retail map of Poland. The unit of the analysis are cities with a population of 40,000-400,000 inhabitants. The method of analysis is based on two models: non-spatial OLS and the spatial regression model. The model’s goal is to predict the retail development of a city based on the most effective predictors. The independent variables included a range of socio-economic indicators such as: city population, city unemployment rate and average salary in the private sector.
