Małgorzata Markowska


Observing the structure of employment and its trend s constitute the fundamental baseline to assess the successes and failures of bo th national and EU social and economic policies in terms of evaluating effectiveness of su pport to regions framed by both competitiveness and cohesion issues. The study pres ents the assessment of structural changes of employment in the system of traditional three ec onomic sectors using the measure of structures dissimilarity along with its decompositi on and trends. The Czech NUTS 2 level regions were used for the study and the analysed pe riod covered the years 2008−2014. The U measure of changes in structure of components was a pplied on data on employment (NACE classification). The results confirmed the current trends of (i) tertiarization in old industrial regions; (ii) the increasing share of employment in the industrial sector shown by some rural regions, and (iii) the growing fragmentation of the spatial pattern of socio/economic development.
