Regional inequalities are a topic which has timely occupied both the academic society as well as the directorate authorities. The different methodology approaches in solving the problem are offered for critical analysis and possible alterations. In this article, a composite weighted indicator of growth is proposed, which will be used to portray regional inequalities. Moreover, the methodology for the choice of a number of variables as part of the composite indicator will also be put forward. The depiction of the inequalities regards those between the country’s regions (NUTS 2) as well as those between ex-prefectures (NUTS 3).
