Diversification of the Spatial Distribution of Entities Providing Business Services - the Case of Lower Silesia

Dorota Rynio , Alicja Zakrzewska-Półtorak


The purpose of this paper is to present and evaluate the relationship between the location of entities providing business services (the business service firms) and investment expenditures of municipalities and enterprises, as well as enterprise development in Lower Silesian Voivodship, and to indicate the determinants of these dependencies. Lower Silesian Voivodship is one of the leading regions in Poland in terms of socio-economic development, on the other hand it is an area characterised by significant spatial development disproportions. Apart from the areas with a high rate of growth and social and economic development, we can observe areas (some of them of post-industrial character) which are characterised by slow overcoming of development deficiencies or even over-coming stagnation. The analysis was carried out at the level of counties(LAU 1, formerly NUTS 4). During this study quantitative methods were used, including synthetic measures of development and correlation, descriptive method and graphical method.
