Abstract

The work reports an application of standardised sums to assess the social and economic development of some counties in Mazovia Voivodeship in the year 2012. A total of 37 counties, belonging to 5 subregions according to the NUTS-3 classifi cation, were included in the study. They represent the following subregions: Ciechanów-Płock, Ostrołęka-Siedlce, Radom, Warsaw East and Warsaw West. County towns/cities were excluded from the analysis. At the fi rst stage, development of the counties located in these subregions was assessed in terms of population, economic and infrastructure development as well as standard of life of inhabitants. The second stage encompassed analysis of the counties in terms of all the criteria within these areas. The study demonstrated substantial socio-economic development disparities. Counties located in the proximity of the Warsaw agglomeration are highly developed in social and economic terms whereas those located at the voivodeship's boundary are poorly developed with respect to all the areas included in the study.
