Geographical distribution of poverty In Poland
Languages of publication
Local indicators of spatial association (acronym: L I S A) were used to identify regions of high and low poverty in Poland. Poverty is defined as the percentage of individuals on welfare – mean values for the period 2007 – 2009. Each region was assigned a name based on location. Twelve indices commonly associated with poverty were analyzed – 4 of the 12 describe financial status, next 4 social and demographic diversity, and last 4 the standard of living. The authors considered the selected indexes and the way they indicate poverty in some regions and are not related to poverty in other regions. The paper concerns cities, suburban gminas and rural gminas.
