The paper contains analyses of regional/county profile and peculiarities with respect to some defining components of the population’s living standard. It approaches issues relating to: a) demographic changes with emphasis on population diminution, natural growth and migration movement in territorial profile; b) current situation of population’s health on counties evaluated based on some mortality and morbidity indicators – on main causes; c) tourist offer on county profile as consumption factor; d) housing conditions and policy in the housing field; e) population incomes distribution by residence and regional environs. The prepared studies make also reference to main explanatory factors, to economic and social implications on medium and long term, as well as to possible directions of action in view of improving flagrant inequalities in the analysed fields.
